“Wheel to the Sea” A challenge hike for wheelchair users and volunteer pushers

This exciting community event is especially designed to serve individuals in wheelchairs, including Iraq, Afghanistan and other military Veterans (and their families). Non-wheelchair users with minor Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD, blindness, deafness or debilitating illnesses are also welcome to push a wheelchair or join in the event.

Fueled with a hearty breakfast, we embark on this five mile naturalist lead hike through Point Mugu State Park. The trail includes rocky terrain, slopes and mud or stream crossings in times of wet weather. These natural obstacles provide challenges and opportunities for team-work and trust building . The event culminates at the beach with a family style barbeque and use of specialized beach wheelchairs.

All who participate will benefit from the physical challenge, social interaction and camaraderie offered from this unique outdoor adventure!

Transportation to and from the event will be provided from locations in both Woodland Hills and Newbury Park.

(Due to reduced funding for bus transportation to and from this event, we must limit the number of volunteers. Priority will go to friends and family of disabled participants).

Though this event is free, please consider donating to help us keep this event going. You can donate with check or cash. For a credit card donation please go to our website at:
