Even though we had to dodge the rain drops, the Adaptive Recreation Expo provided great outdoor activities for the disability community at James Island County Park. Participants enjoyed many sports including kayaking, wall climbing, hand cycling and archery.
Several organizations were on hand to share information about their programs and services. Mobility Supercenter had a ramp van on display and also had an all-terrain wheelchair, called the Action Tracker, available for people to test drive.

As September comes to an end, we also close out Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month. Over the past several weeks, I hope you’ve been able to see that the possibilities are endless for people with SCI when it comes living a fulfilled life. The longevity after an injury has increased thanks to the research and improved medical treatments. It’s also an added benefit to participate in recreational activities like the ones in the video below!
