ShrewsAbility highlight Corbin's story for EFL Day of Disabilities
Today as part of the EFL’s Day of Disabilities we are highlighting the story of Corbin, a participant in one Shrewsbury Town in the Community’s ShrewsAbility projects.
After being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Corbin’s parents were told that he may never be able to walk, however now he is an active and regular participant in football and sporting activities through the sessions ran by Shrewsbury Town in the Community.
His parents have said that taking part in the sessions has improved his whole outlook on life.
“Corbin never wore shorts until he played football. He embraces the whole football sort of thing, from the Shrewsbury Town sessions it really has improved his whole outlook on life” – Darren Davies, Corbin’s Dad.
Along with being a keen participant, coaches on the project have spoken out about how Corbin acts as a motivator for the group, and how his determination and enthusiasm has a positive effect on the rest of the group.
Below is a video with more information about Corbin’s progress and story.
