Batavia resident competing in wheelchair games in Seattle
Batavia resident Mark Blanch is competing this week in Seattle at the 2009 National Veterans Wheelchair Games, according the D&C.
Blanch, 52, will compete in swimming, table tennis, track and field and pool.
“We’re not people that sit around the house and do nothing,” Blanch said. “We like doing things. We like competing and every one of us feel that we’re not disabled.”
Blanch was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1992.
