The key to being an exceptional athlete is to always do your best and never give up. Such qualities are found in Paralympians, whom face adversities and exhibit exceptional athleticism.
Fort Hood’s Child, Youth & School Services’ Youth Sports & Fitness program has a remarkable opportunity for youth to learn various adaptive sports in a sports-clinic setting, while competing against one another
in a true adaptive sports scrimmage.
U.S. Paralympics Adaptive Experience takes place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. today at Abrams Physical Fitness Center.
This event is free and open to all. For more information or to arrange accommodations, due to a medical disability, call 288-2214.
