It’s all about accessible adventures and recreational activities available to students, staff and faculty with disabilities, and their fellow students and colleagues. Learn about the possibilities for inclusive, active and creative fun. This is a free campus wide event and everyone is invited.
Check out demos of accessibly designed sports and travel equipment including test riding adaptive cycles; enjoy performances and inclusive games; learn about SF State courses and programs offering unique accessible and inclusive activities, services and adventures; and discover accessible adventures in the Bay Area and Beyond from over twenty organizations.
Andrew Carter is the CEO of Carter Medical Devices and the inventor of the Carter Cuff. He became a transradial amputee (left hand, above the wrist) as a result of an electrical accident as a teenager. He has been a gym rat for most of his adult life and developed the Carter Cuff after he looked for one and found that it didn’t exist yet. The Cuff has helped many persons with similar conditions to lead a more full life. His disability also did not stop him from being active, as he plays ice hockey frequently.
Andrew is an intellectual property and music affairs attorney at a major motion picture studio in Los Angeles. He has two decades of broad international experience in the entertainment industry as an attorney, artist manager, A&R executive, publicist, editor and journalist. Andrew is a graduate of Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, California. He is a member of the California Bar and the Beverly Hills Bar Association, and a dual citizen of the United States and the United Kingdom.
You will hear Andrews engaging story of becoming disabled, coming to terms with the injury, becoming an entrepreneur for accessible equipment and not letting his condition stop him from achieving professional and personal fulfillment.
