Wheelchair Relay Challenge
The Wheelchair Relay Challenge is a fun, family-friendly event that successfully levels the playing field for people who use wheelchairs. Participants – with and without disabilities – team up to relay race around a track to win award titles such as Fastest Team, Most Spirited Team and Best Fundraising Team.
In this race, disability is an advantage as those who regularly use a wheelchair usually can out push someone who is using a chair for the first time. However, for those without disabilities, the relay emphasizes the skills needed for wheelchair use and, more importantly, that we all have varying levels of skills and challenges.
All money raised supports people who are re-building their lives after a spinal cord injury through the programs and services of Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario.
