BRUNSWICK, Ga. --  Steve Oldaker, who is a quadriplegic, is the chairman of the annual Spring Fling event held in downtown Brunswick, Georgia.

Oldaker got involved with the Spring Fling event 13 years ago.  

The Spring Fling is an event provides forums and different activities that address issues of interest to people with disabilities, their families and the general public.

Oldaker was involved in a single car accident 25 years old in Kentucky.

The car accident left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Oldaker lives with his parents who take care of him, but he knows not all quadriplegics are fortunate enough to have someone who loves and takes care of them.

Oldaker said the event allows others with disabilities to see and know they're not alone and there's help out there for them.

The next Spring Fling will be held April 12th 2014 in downtown Brunswick, Georgia at Mary Ross Park from noon to 3 p.m. and it's free.
