It takes some special adaptive equipment to get Jason on the water, most notably a kayak with an outrigger that helps with balance, so he doesn’t tip the boat. He’s also got a specially designed paddle that allows him to power the boat without needing to grip the paddle like you or I might.
On Sunday, Jason is organizing “Kayak for a Cure,” a day of kayaking for everyone, to raise awareness for people with spinal cord injuries and to raise money for The Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation. The Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation provides charitable grants to people with spinal cord injuries, and is working to find a cure for paralysis through funding the latest medical research. Kayak for a Cure is from Noon until 4pm at Rutabaga Paddlesports, 220 West Broadway, Madison 53716
