What do you see?
Some see a bird that cannot fly and waddles slowly on land.
We see a unique talent that is unparelled in the sea. Penguins can swim 25 mph, dive to depths of 1500 ft, and thrive at temperatures of 100 below zero.
We recognize, unlock, and enable the unique talents of people with disabilities.
