I hope everyone had a fun, safe Memorial Day weekend. Let us remember to recognize and honor the brave men and women of our military, past and present, not just on Memorial Day, but every day!
Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of summer and it’s the time of year where people begin to have fun in the sun. Achieving Wheelchair Equality, Charleston’s adapted sporting group, and the Department of Physical Therapy from MUSC host the Adapted Water Ski Clinic.
If you haven’t seen adapted water skiing before, it’s one of the most exciting activities to do on the water. There is a ski chair that allows the rider to sit while being pulled by the boat. Physical therapists are on-hand to assist with the swim safety test and transferring to and from the skis.
I attempted to ski last year, but didn’t have enough strength to flip myself on my back as part of the ski safety training. I may give it a try again this year. Even if I don’t ski, it will be fun just to be in the water.
There will be two clinics held this summer: June 8 and July 20. Both events will take place at Lion’s Beach in Moncks Corner, SC. To register for either clinic, download the participant or volunteer forms. Today is the last day to register for the June 8 clinic.
