The Ability Center

If Damian Buchman has his way, a remarkable new community resource for Milwaukee County's 100,000-plus residents with disabilities will be built within the next couple of years.

Buchman is the founder and executive director of The Ability Center, a community sports center for people of all abilities - disabled and able-bodied.

Buchman himself suffered from childhood cancer and almost lost both legs.  But he grew up to be an active, athletic adult, and wanted to give others the opportunity, as well.
