Outdoors with Disabilities

Andrew Kurka, US Paralympics

On Outdoor Explorer, we get to interview some of the heartiest and most driven athletes in the world, people who test themselves against Alaska and win. On this week’s show, we meet athletes who fit that description, but do it while dealing with a disability. They prove that Alaska’s outdoors are accessible for skiing, boating, hunting, hand-cycle racing, and just about anything else you want to try.
