On Saturday, Achieving Wheelchair Eqaulity and Anchors Away held the second and final adaptive water ski clinic of the summer on Lake Moultrie.
People from all over the Lowcountry came out to enjoy a day on the water. Some participants were amputees while others had spinal cord injuries. Regardless of the disability, everyone was included in the water sports.
Students from MUSC’s Department of Physical Therapy assisted with transferring people to and from the skis. It’s not only a learning environment for the students, but it’s educational for the participants too.
It’s remarkable to see someone getting in the water for the first time since living with their disability. The freedom of being out of the wheelchair for a few moments is a sight to see. Don’t let your disability stop you from living your life!
