It features adults and children with disabilities involved in a wide range of recreational activities - from skiing to hang gliding. The program also won top honors in the 1992 International Health and Medical Film Festival.

National recognition was accorded another video program produced and directed by Hammond. The video, which features the Utah Assistive Technology Foundation, was selected from among 8,000 entries to receive a prestigious 1993 Telly Award for overall excellence.
