our first meeting

We first met together in February 2017 at Jackson Madison County General Hospital.  While some of the group knew each other from playing wheelchair basketball with the Jackson Generals, (who incidentally, won two national titles!) most of us were brand new and became fast friends.

EDUCATION

Woody Tatman, with Work Plus Physical Therapy in Jackson, giving us a presentation about what's involved with driving with hand controls and wheelchair lifts, requirements for a license, and safety.   Next, member Edward Mitchell talks about his experiences and his work at Jackson Center for Independent Living (JCIL).

HIPPOTHERAPY

We took a trip to the Reinbow Riding Academy, which is an incredible place where children and adults with mental or physical disabilities are given the chance to ride a horse, many for the first time ever.

CAMP UNITED

We recently traveled to Nashville for Camp United, put on by the Tennessee chapter of the United Spinal Association.  It was a great day full of kayaking, ziplining, wheelchair badminton, and "Wash and Roll" wheelchair cleaning,

 sponsored by NuMotion, and many volunteers.  Our newest member Lakisha said it was one of the best days of her life!
