    Wheel to the Sea | A Challenge hike for Veterans, Wheelchair Users and Volunteer Pushers

    Wheel to the Sea | A Challenge hike for Veterans, Wheelchair Users and Volunteer Pushers

    Join us at the FREE “Wheel to the Sea” event “A challenge hike for Veterans, wheelchair users and volunteer pushers” Saturday, May 4, 2019, 8AM-6:30PM  | Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, Malibu, CA

    This exciting community event is especially designed to serve individuals in wheelchairs, including Iraq, Afghanistan and other military Veterans (and their families). Non-wheelchair users with minor Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, blindness, deafness or debilitating illnesses are also welcome to push a wheelchair or join in the event. Fueled with a hearty breakfast, we embark on this five mile naturalist-led hike through Point Mugu State Park. The trail includes rocky terrain, slopes and mud or stream crossings in times of wet weather. These natural obstacles provide challenges and opportunities for team-work and trust building. The event culminates at the beach with a family style barbeque and use of specialized beach wheel-chairs. All who participate will benefit from the physical challenge, social interaction and camaraderie offered from this unique outdoor adventure.
