Memorial Rehabilitation Institute and AQUANAUTS ADAPTIVE AQUATICS collaborated to bring to our community the 5th Annual Adaptive Sports & Recreation Expo at Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida. The event featured a wide variety of sports and exercises beneficial to the physical and mental health of those who have suffered strokes, lost the use of limbs, or are coping with traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. Activities and entertainment was provided for a fun filled day for the entire family.

Thank you to our volunteers and participants that dove on the Maritime Heritage Trail on March 23rd. Was a great dive! Beautiful conditions and our volunteers were able to clean up an entanglement hazard from one of the dive sites. Some great pictures from the event. A few are here, but you can find more on our facebook page.
A ripple begins when something strikes the surface of the water. Your donation makes a ripple in the surface of someone's life. You may never know the depth of the difference you made, but you will know that you made a difference.
Please join us to show how that ripple can spread to positively affect the lives of veterans and individuals with disabilities.
THE RIPPLE CHALLENGE IS THIS: 1) Donate $5.00. (If you can do more, it is greatly appreciated.)
2) This is just as important. Tag or invite at least 5 of your social network (whether Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc) to do the same. That will start a ripple and let's see how far it will go.
3)Comment. Your thoughts on this challenge/mission/anything with your city and state listed.
This challenge is raising money for Aquanauts Adaptive Aquatics and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $1 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
