For someone with a disability, many of life’s pleasures can become more difficult to access, especially activities like watersports. Waterskiing or kayaking for someone with a spinal injury can be a challenging endeavor, often requiring expensive custom equipment and trained assistance. Despite all of the challenges, every year hundreds of persons with disabilities enjoy watersports at MBAC, thanks greatly in part to funding raised by the Torrey Pines Kiwanis at the La Jolla Festival of the Arts, and a dedicated group of volunteers who make it happen.
The La Jolla Festival of the Arts™, takes place on June 23rd & 24th on the beautiful coastal campus of UC San Diego at Warren Field. The “La Jolla” is one of the most prestigious juried art shows in the country and will once again feature over 190 award winning artists, along with live chalk art creations, art performances, delicious and healthy cuisines, adult beverage libations from Stone Brewery, and live entertainment throughout the weekend. Produced by the Torrey Pines Kiwanis, a non-profit organization that raises funds to support adaptive sports and recreation programs for San Diegans with disabilities, the Festival is a unique opportunity to combine support for adaptive programs and services that help those who have incurred serious and long term injuries, and artists who work hard to bring creativity and imagination to us every day.
Take the opportunity to support your community by attending the Festival and help ensure access to watersports for persons with disabilities. Tickets are available online at http://www.lajollaartfestival.org/ for just $12. Experience a wonderful day of fun and excitement with your family and parking is FREE!
