Alex “AJ” Schilling is blind, uses a wheelchair and is going deaf. He suffers seizures daily due to a rare disorder that’s afflicted him since birth.
His parents wanted to make their home as accessible as possible for their growing 11-year-old son, who weighs 72 pounds. Make-A-Wish contacted ESPN and the company’s Bristol Facilities team jumped into action.
Company volunteers with skills that fit the project were key to its success. Learn more about how the project came about by visiting ESPN Front Row.
