A variety of adaptive sports will be featured at the annual Mark Wellman’s Adventure Day event at the Sparks Marina on Sunday, June 5th. This special event wouldn't be possible without the help of the City of Sparks, Nell J. Redfield Foundation, and City of Reno Parks Recreation and Community Services.
People with disabilities and their friends and families are invited to try out hand-cycling, kayaking, and rock climbing through the use of a broad range of adaptive equipment. The free event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Marina peninsula.
Now in its 17th year, Adventure Day opens up a world of possibilities in accessing physical activity. Participants can experience the joy and freedom of moving their arms and legs in ways they never thought possible by taking part in the adaptive sports offered.
Additionally, access to information and resources from a variety of community organizations such as Arts for All, Nevada, Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities, and Nevada Disability Advocacy and Law Center, to name a few, will be available.
Immunize Nevadas will also be on hand with COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots, so bring your vaccine card and get some free protection.
