Like a lot of wheelchair users, Jim Chaney of Vicksburg dreaded slippery slopes – until he learned how to zip down snowy peaks on a ski specially designed for quadriplegics.
Snow skiing is one of many activities made accessible by Methodist Rehab’s adaptive sports program. And Chaney says he’s grateful for the chance to take on new challenges.
“I’ve tried water skiing, quad rugby, handcycling and wheelchair softball and fencing. And I don’t know how I would have gotten to do those things without Methodist Rehab.”
