Water Sports Event Coming to Lake Palestine for Children with Disabilities

adaptive aquafest

There is a really cool event coming to Lake Palestine on Saturday, July 7. It’s called an “Adaptive Aquafest” and is for children and adults with disabilities to experience water skiing! If you are not the parent of, or personally know anyone with a disability, then you may have never thought about the fact that they can’t experience water sports like the rest of us.
This event allows wheelchair-bound children and adults access to water sports by using specially designed skis and boating equipment, along with highly trained professionals to help the participants. Texas Adaptive Aquatic’s is a nonprofit group that provides this experience. So far they have helped more than 10,000 disabled persons nationwide to experience water skiing and boating.

Right now, they are looking for skiers, donations and volunteers. A charity Texas Hold ’em Poker Tournament will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at Coyote Sam’s Restaurant in Tyler. All proceeds will go toward funding for the Adaptive Aquafest. All donations are tax deductible as well. First place prize for the tournament will be a custom-built golf cart!
