Local wheelchair athlete Jerry Sarason helps

Jerry Sarason is one of the athletes looking forward to Easter Seals Michigan’s Hightail it for Heroes event on Saturday, Nov. 10 at Stony Creek Metropark. Jerry has been a wheelchair user for 22 years and is a certified mobility consultant for Mobility Works and will be making sure the course is properly set up for the race.

Easter Seals Michigan selected Jerry to give the final inspection of the racecourse, because of his 20 years of experience in wheelchair racing. He reviews course turns and terrain, ensuring they are wheelchair accessible, and will ensure that all wheelchair athletes will have a safe and enjoyable time at the event.
