Push to Open – Access Challenge Video

‘Push to Open’

This wonderful 20 minute video, produced by Alberta Parks, was filmed in Kananaskis Provincial Park.  It documents the wonderful opportunities persons with disabilities now have to experience the outdoors.  It features volunteers from the Community Recreational Initiatives Society (CRIS) and shows how adaptive equipment can be used to enable those with even severe impairments to gain access to wilderness sites.  (videos used here with permission from Alberta Parks)

The Rockets in our Community

The Kelowna Rockets join CRIS Adaptive Adventures to help raise awareness of the importance of inclusion and outdoor recreation for people with disabilities in our community. By attending the hike, the Kelowna Rockets help CRIS Adaptive Adventures to take out 8 Kelowna citizens with disabilities out into the beautiful Mission Creek Greenway.
