VA’s 5th Annual Adaptive Sports Expo
Explore, engage, and THRIVE!
For the second time, Cell Dogs was privileged to attend this wonderful annual event. Over 750 people participated including veterans and family, caregivers, staff, and community partners. The first ever Marina Day featured kayaking, rowing, cycling, and paddle boarding!
Cell Dogs had a busy booth on Friday, October 11. In-training service dog Duff was in attendance, making us a hit! Working service dog Ruby also made a special appearance.
At last year’s event, Ruby found her forever home. Read her story and learn more about service dogs here: https://www.celldogs.org/2018/11/20/rubys-story-a-service-dogs-journey/
We had a chance to walk around and met with some terrific vendors. We loved this inclusive organization: https://desertabilitycenter.org/. Look out for their upcoming event in Palm Springs this December. We were also impressed by this all-terrain, lever-drive wheelchair created specifically for dog lovers (with an additional leash hook to allow free roaming). Check it out: https://www.gogrit.us/
See you next year!
