"Playing sports was a huge part of my childhood and I believe that it helps children of all abilities activate their creativity, wonder, and sense of adventure. WAWOS challenges stereotypes around physical disability and advocates access to adventure for kids of all abilities, and I'm very excited to join the WAWOS organization and use my platform to make a positive impact," said Beck.

Beck will join a team of business leaders at WAWOS that include Tina White, Chief Commercial Officer at Ingenuity Brands/Brainiac, Dr. Stacy Menz, Founder at Starfish Therapies, and Amy Heine, VP Creative Operations at Williams Sonoma, Inc.

"Our board of directors is made up of individuals from diverse backgrounds who share a common goal: a desire to disrupt the narrative around physical disabilities  in order to encourage all children to be seen for their full selves, and not be defined by a diagnosis or device," said Jacquie Robison, Founder and CEO of WAWOS. "Tristan is a dynamic, approachable and gifted athlete with a strong passion for making adventure accessible to everyone. His dedication to community aligns with our mission to create a more inclusive and supportive world for all."
