The response to the Sat., June 2nd Day on the Lake event at the Vasona Lake & Park event in Los Gatos has been tremendous and as of today, there are only a few time slots available for the accessible kayaks which you can register for HERE.
The free event is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and marks the first time that an event of this kind has been held in Santa Clara County and the hope is that it will be an annual event allowing individuals with a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury to experience water-based recreational activities conducted in an accessible kayak or canoe. The folks at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and many partners, including NorCal SCI, have worked tirelessly over the past six months to make this day possible and a lot of activities are planned for the family, friends and disabled community members to make it a memorable day.
In addition to the accessible kayaks and canoes, able-bodied individuals can also access the regular inventory of kayaks, pedal boats and paddle boards. Free hot dogs and refreshments will also be served along with DJ-hosted music and a lot of activities for kids as well as informational booths from community organizations supporting the disabled community. Demonstration of accessible sail boats will also take place. For additional information, call (408) 885-2397.
