The South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association is hosting the WIND Conference Saturday, May 10 in Columbia, South Carolina. People with spinal cord injuries, their family members and others who work with people with disabilities will be in attendance at the Columbia Conference Center.
Sessions throughout the day will feature a wheelchair dance exhibition, an acupuncture presentation, a lesson on cooking and a session called “Tips from the Toolbox” describing wheelchair maintenance techniques. I will be one of the presenters describing how I keep my wheelchair in tip-top shape. Outdoor exhibits will include adapted vehicles and wheelchair sports.
Make sure to bring your camera or have a cell phone with you to participate in the WIND photography contest. Participants will be able to submit their photos that capture all the fun activities.
This event is a great way to meet other people living with spinal cord injuries and who may have similar interests to you.
