JJ Watt of The Houston Texans football team asked my power soccer team to be apart of his charity baseball game at The Astros Minute Maid Park. He's given money to our team so that we could have all uniform jerseys to play in. So he asked us if we could help him pass out programs to all the people coming to watch the game. I was paired up with Kirsten to hand out programs. I think we ended up going through 4 or 5 boxes of 500 programs. A lot of people came up to me and Kirsten talking to us and take pictures with us and a few people hugged us, most people were very nice. When we first started handing them out all l did is just smile at the people but towards the end of it l started handing out some. At the first of the game they brought First Lady Barbra Bush to the field to through out the first pitch. It was pretty cool that I got to see Barbra Bush in person. Roger Clemens, Clyde Drexler and Jeff Bagwell were coaches. The teams were the Texans offense verses the Texans defense. The guys sure could run fast! Me and my dad decided to leave early, cause we had to be there so early, but if l was to guess who won, l would pick the offense team! I think JJ Watt ended up raising a little over a million dollars that night to help other kids and teams like ours. Pretty cool night!
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
