When was the last time you went skiing, hunting, golfing, bowling and off-roading in the same day?
If you answered never, you’ll have a chance to rectify that glaring bucket list omission at this year’s 7th Annual Adaptive Sports and Recreation Clinic.
The event, hosted by the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Iowa, keeps growing every year, offering more and more opportunities to try out the latest in adaptive sports and recreation. Chapter president Angie Plager says she is hoping to build off last year’s stellar turnout of 39 chair users and around 100 attendees. “Our goal as a chapter is to bring people together that have a spinal cord injury or a disease and their families and their friends and help them realize and achieve the maximum independence that they want,” she says. “We want them to understand that it doesn’t have to be all about medical issues. Life is fun, let’s live it up.”
The event is Aug. 27 at Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines, Iowa. Admission is free for anyone in the state of Iowa living with spinal cord injury and disease.
