Students with disabilities at The University of Alabama now have the opportunity to participate in outdoor recreation activities adapted to their needs thanks to a collaborative effort of UA Disability Sports and University Outdoor Recreation.
The first adapted recreation activity was on Sept.10 when seven students and three guides took an adapted paddling trip on Lake Nicol; the disabled students used specially outfitted touring kayaks. Future events will include rock climbing, mountain biking and road biking, all with specialized equipment for students with ambulatory disabilities.
