HOUSTON, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The BridgingApps Program of Easter Seals Greater Houston, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has launched Go For the Goal – Your Story contest; an invitation to those with disabilities to share a story of setting a personal goal and working toward achieving it. The campaign will appear on BridgingApps Facebook page and website.   

Inspired by the work, dedication and spirit of the athletes stepping onto the world stage, BridgingApps' goal is to bring awareness about a community of people who work every single day to overcome obstacles, reach goals and achieve their dreams.  Reaching goals requires immense individual effort and the perseverance of everyday heroes like therapists, doctors, teachers and families who work to support, encourage and cheer their loved ones on. There are 1 billion people in the world with a disability and according to the CDC, 1 in 6 kids has a developmental disability. Go For the Goal – Your Story is seeking stories that celebrate how people with disabilities set and reach goals big and small every day.

Throughout the year, BridgingApps receives stories from those who are leveraging the power of technology to communicate, to learn, and to live and work in their communities. Go For the Goal – Your Story will highlight the achievements great and small, such as learning to ride a bike, using a communication device or relearning how to shoot a basket, all which deserve attention and celebration.

Those wishing to submit a story can enter the contest by uploading a story through video, photos, words, or some combination of the three on BridgingApps Facebook page. Stories from Go For the Goal – Your Story will appear on and Fans may participate in the conversation across social media by using #TeamBridgingApps.
