It’s time to Get Out, Enjoy Life as SPORTS `N SPOKES, the Spina Bifida Association and Cure Medical bring you Summer Tour 2017
It’s summer and that can only mean one thing … It’s time for the Get Out, Enjoy Life contest. This year’s theme is Summer Tour 2017. We’ve got a host of new accessible destinations, two new contest partners and an entire month to get out and enjoy life.
For our return contestants, you’re probably wondering why we’re running GOEL later than usual. Yes, you’d be right. This year we wanted to give coverage to our SPORTS `N SPOKES Junior Athlete of the Year winner, Jason Robinson. He recently became our 35th winner and will appear on the cover of the September 2017 issue of S`NS. Well, what about GOEL? This year’s winner will get our November 2017 cover and wrap the year in style.
Joining us this year to help us get out and enjoy life is our long-time friends at the Spina Bifida Association (SBA) and SPORTS ‘N SPOKES. We’re happy to have them along on our adventure and hope you’ll take some time to hit them up and show some love.
“Community is important to the Spina Bifida Association and its constituents,” says SBA president Sara Struwe. “The Get Out and Enjoy Life program fits well with SBA’s goals to develop a stronger, close-knit community and highlight how people with Spina Bifida go beyond all limits. This is the perfect opportunity for our community members to connect with and encourage each other to have an active summer! I’m looking forward to seeing how people with Spina Bifida spend their vacations.”
“We are thrilled to offer the Get Out, Enjoy Life accessible travel contest to more than 50,000 families served by the Spina Bifida Association, and to wheelchair users nationwide. We hope these deserving families will love GOEL’s accessible travel resources plus the opportunity to share their own family photos as encouragement to others who want to explore their world on wheels,” Cure Medical CEO John Anderson shares.
