Trinity provides adventure trips for disabled

Greg Fischer

Jason Bland, CEO and founder of Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures spoke at the Rotary of East Ascension's breakfast on Tuesday, March 7.

Bland has a unique story. He turned his life around after a car accident years ago, which ultimately caused the removal of one of his legs. Since then, he has dedicated his life to enriching the lives of other disabled people in the community.

One of the ways Trinity is able to achieve their goal is by hosting outdoors adventures to disabled people. For instance, Bland showed footage of one disabled person shooting their first deer on a hunting trip.

This weekend, Lamar Dixon Expo Center will feature Trinity's 4th Annual Bass Classic and "Art of the Machine" Custom Indoor Motor Show. The event also features an "Uncle Booga Jambalaya, Pastalya and Crackling Cook Off."

There is no alcohol at the event. It's not too late to sign up for the cook off. More info is available at www.trinitydisabledadventures.com, or call 225-715-9581 or 985-992-0856.

A portion of the proceeds will go towards The Promise Project, building three handicap deer hunting areas in Ascension, St. James, and St. John Parishes.
