UroMed Sponsors San Antonio Sports All Can Ski Event at Sea World


The 21st annual San Antonio Sports All Can Ski event is set for August 20, 21 & 22 and will take place at SeaWorld San Antonio on Sea World Lake!  UroMed is a proud sponsor of this year’s outing, contributing scholarships to cover the cost of financially-challenged participants.

Presented by SeaWorld Cares, the All Can Ski event will offer three full days of skiing. It’s the last week of summer for area schools and the park will be open as well. This year more than 120 adaptive skiers will hit the SeaWorld ski lake!

Started in 1992, All Can Ski was created to provide persons with physical disabilities the opportunity to experience waterskiing.  Such disabilities include spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, amputees, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis.

“For so many participants, this is a chance to leave wheelchairs and crutches on the dock and experience the thrill of waterskiing,” said Ross Davis, a Paralympic gold medalist who has coordinated the event since 1995. Special sessions are held just for kids and for wounded warriors.

Here’s some of the highlights from last year’s All Can Ski event:

 

How You Can Get Involved
Spots are limited for the All Can Ski Event – if you would like to participate as a skiier, you must register to reserve your place on the time schedule. Register here.

Each participant will get TWO SeaWorld passes, ONE lunch ticket to any SeaWorld restaurant and ONE t-shirt with his or her All Can Ski registration.

Dietzen-Menger Adaptive Water Ski Grant Program
Since 2009, All Can Ski has put skis in the hands of skiers who show potential and have the resources to ski independently. One of the biggest obstacles to skiing independently is the cost of the equipment.

Named after two of All Can Ski’s most committed volunteers, Alan Dietzen and Erich Menger, the grant is designed to provide at least one ski each year to a promising participant.  Contribute to the program here.
