Description

Back by popular demand, our Sixth Paralysis Survivors and Supporters Meet Up will be September 28 & 29!

Following up on the success of our two day events the last couple years, Day One (open to survivors and supporters only) will be all about peer connections, with multiple breakout discussion meetings for both survivors and supporters followed by a fried chicken potluck dinner! (Potluck sign-up: https://perfectpotluck.com/BBBY1961)

Day Two (open to all) will feature a wide array of local organizations for members to gain valuable resources for the latest wheelchair technology and other opportunities in the Northwest. There will also be plenty of adaptive sports demos like hand cycling, quad rugby, power soccer, and more!
