El Pasoan helping make golf more accessible to people with disabilities


EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Non-profit organization "Call Me ABLE" and world ranked one handed golfer Gianna Rojas, hosted a special event for media members to learn about golfing with disabilities. The event was meant to showcase how people with different disabilities adapt to the golf course.

Members of the media worked on hitting a golf club on one leg, with one hand, and even with their eyes closed.

Rojas was born without fingers on her left hand, but has made golf a passion of hers for over a decade. Her drive is to make sure anyone can be welcomed into the game of golf, and find their passions regardless of circumstance.

Call me ABLE says their mission is to "shift the societal paradigm of disability with advocacy, education, and mentorship to help children with disabilities, and those that care for them, by providing resources that will foster and develop adaptive leadership to thrive in challenging environments."
