On Saturday August 17th, Wheeling Forward and Leaps of Faith joined forces to collaborate “Beyond the Boundaries” which was an adaptive water skiing clinic for children and adults with disabilities. The event was held at Meadow Lake Boathouse at Flushing Meadows in Corona Park, NY. Three members of our Handicapped Scuba Diving Alliance volunteered to help out. Mike was in charge of guiding the skiers and outrigger ski into the water and helping them take off safely. Jayme was a safety swimmer riding on the back of a jet ski ready to jump in if any skiers fell into the water. Although the water was a little murky, everyone had a great time both in and out of the water. A big thank you to Alex Elegudin for putting together such a great event!— at Flushing Meadows – Corona Park.
For eight years United States soldiers, who were severely wounded in Iraq and / or Afghanistan, fly to Bonaire for their final open water dives. Next year’s trip is already in the planning stages.
I have had the opportunity to be one of the dive instructors and traveled with them on all six trips to Bonaire. While there, we have had the pleasure to mingle with the local people of the island and to meet the local governing body.
Seeing the out pouring of love and care that the people of the island have bestowed upon our wounded warriors, and after talking to them about the needs of the handicapped children on the island, HSA started a “Santa Toy Ride”. Shipping Christmas toys and other needed items to the island at the holidays.
Seventh Annual “Santa Toy Ride”
