We aren't there yet, but things are heating up. Spring is in full effect and while that means the world is beautiful and blooming, we know that Summer is right around the corner. What does that mean for OSBI? Keep reading...

We celebrated the end of the One Step Sharks hockey season in style at Hockey is for Everyone Night with the NHL San Jose Sharks. Our California hockey team and their families enjoyed the VIP treatment as they watched the Sharks take on the Nashville Predators from two executive suites. We also got to wave to all the fans in the stadium while featured on the Jumbo-Tron after the sharks played a special video presentation about the adaptive tools we utilized during practices. Thank you the San Jose Sharks Foundation or organization for all of your support. We can't wait until we can hit the ice with you all next year!
Al is an OSBI Participant whose brother just so happens to be our OSBI Board Chair. Recently, Jim and Al encountered a life-changing resource for both of their lives - a dentist who specializes in working with people with disabilities. Check out Jim's story on our OSBI Blog, along with information about Dr. David and his wonderful team.
