DETIALS: Started in 1992, All Can Ski was created to provide persons with physical disabilities the opportunity to experience waterskiing. Such disabilities include spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, amputees, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis.
“For so many participants, this is a chance to leave wheelchairs and crutches on the dock and experience the thrill of waterskiing,” said Ross Davis, a Paralympic gold medalist who has coordinated the event since 1995. Special sessions are held just for kids and for wounded warriors.
San Antonio Sports, a nonprofit sports commission, has partnered with SeaWorld San Antonio® as its host venue since the event began two decades ago. SeaWorld provides the venue at no cost and also provides complimentary admission to event volunteers and skiing participants.
All Can Ski is also sponsored by H-E-B.
