    I am a 71 year old woman living in Phoenix Arizona originally from NYC.Got a law degree at ASU.You are right about the high correlation between age and disability.I now have limited mobility issues from a bad knee chronic back pproblems trying to avoid surgery as well as other issues more insistent as a result of aging.The correlation is not sufficient addressed.I am disappointed that the Rally organizers did not make it easier for seating accommodation automatically during registration.
