Parents. Has your child grown during the pandemic? Is their sports chair now a better fit for a younger sibling? Maybe it's time for a change. Do you have flat tires you don’t know what to do with? Has your chair been out of use for the better part of a year? Might be time for a tune up. Bring your chair (and your child) to our event and we will help with maintenance and swap out equipment for a better fit while you explore a bunch of wheelchair sports and have fun!

If you have any questions, please contact Ana Karanovic at [email protected]
