The 23rd Annual Day on the Beach was a huge success! Over 300 inviduals with disabilities participated in kayaking, SCUBA diving, outrigger canoeing, and beach wheelchair rides. For the first time ever, adaptive rock climbing was included in the experience! A record number of 250 volunteers came out to support the event.
