Ski Fest Makes a Splash for Area Physically Challenged People
July 13, 2010
St. Luke's Rehabilitation Institute is taking a splash again with Ski Fest July 24-25 on Clear Lake.
Ski Fest offers an opportunity for physically challenged people of all ages to try water sports including adaptive water skiing, jet skiing and swimming.
"Ski Fest supports increasing leisure options and peer interaction in a fun summer atmosphere," said Candice Belcourt, St. Luke’s recreational therapist and Ski Fest event coordinator. "The participants have the opportunity to participate in a fun, exciting and healthy activity despite their physical challenges."
Ski Fest is an annual opportunity for physically challenged people of all ages to take advantage of water sports. For more information about Ski Fest, visit www.st-lukes.org.
