Chapter Presentations and Events:

The Plymouth Public Library was the gathering site for the terrific January 21st presentation by 2016 Rio Paralympian and Goalball Silver Medalist, John Altan Kusku. Attendees learned a lot about the sport of goalball and John is such an amazing, positive person. Having retinitis pigmentosa (RP) has not stopped him from pursuing his dreams, not only medaling at the Paralympics but also in teaching math and physics. John is also a great example of never giving up hope.
