On June 29, 2013, the SBHANA is excited to be hosting the first ever Skate for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus at the Castledowns Skatepark in Edmonton!
As part of this event, the SBHANA is offering a NEW program - an introduction to WCMX and the skatepark! To do this, we have invited Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham to run the program.
Wheelz is a an individual with spina bifida who has made quite a name for himself in WCMX - he was the first individual to land a backflip in a wheelchair! He is a true inspiration to all.
This program is important to our association and our members because it showcases that nothing is impossible. Difference does not mean you cannot participate, it may mean, however, that you may participate in an activity in a different way. Recreation is an important part of healthy living and the SBHANA would like to encourage our members and other Edmontonians to be active, regardless of ability, in whichever sport they chose to participate. This program will give many individuals the opportunity to try something in a safe and welcoming environment that they would not otherwise have had the opportunity to try. Wheelz is the perfect individual to introduce SBHANA members to the fun and empowering world of WCMX.
The SBHANA needs YOUR help to raise the funds to run this program. Please help us reach our goal of $4000 so our members can participate in this wonderful program!
