The festival offers everything from film screenings to adventure activities.

For Bedwell, it offers a chance to share his passion.

“Sharing my passing that is my passion,” Bedwell said. “When I got introduced to adaptive sports, outdoor recreational sports, it was because of some other blind veterans coming back from overseas and war. And it just built from there, you know. OK, if they can do this we can do this.” See more here.
