The Ebele Uzamere kids hadn’t planned on tackling a 25ft rock climbing wall on Saturday. But when they arrived at Expo Abilities 2022 at the NRG Center and saw other kids in wheelchairs waiting to get on, they suddenly wanted to give it a try.
Uzamere helped strap each child into a safety harness. She sealed off their portable fans. Then they suddenly became mountaineers when a system of ropes and pulleys lifted them into the air. Spectators cheered as they victoriously rang a bell near the top of the wall.
