For all our friends in the CURE NATION, we hope you’ll enjoy and share this fun idea list of accessible outings that kids will love! Keep these ideas in mind for your next accessible adventure with your loved ones.
Ashleigh Jennings says of the picture above, “This is me and my service dog, aka my “wing girl”, Sara checking out Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. We stopped to get a picture in front of the fountains.”
While October may be Spina Bifida Awareness Month, we know like you do that Spina Bifida education goes so much further than that, and so do people who are born with this congenital condition. That’s why we are sharing these ideas, to encourage our community to explore their world!
The pictures below, and their stories, are courtesy of the 2018 Wheels UP! Photo Contest hosted by SPORTS ‘N SPOKES magazine, Cure Medical, Abilities Expo and the Spina Bifida Association. Enjoy!
