For this month’s Community Profiles episode, we welcome Beverly Weurding, the visionary behind the Wheelchair Dancers Organization. Diagnosed with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 55, Beverly was navigating life as a new wheelchair user at a time when many contemplate retirement. Empowered by her physical therapist’s support, she founded the Wheelchair Dancers Organization, enabling her to share her lifelong passion for dance with the disabled community. Beverly’s unwavering optimism and resilience shine through as she describes the impact of the Wheelchair Dancers Organization. We can’t wait to share her story with you!
