LCKC is one of the proud beneficiaries of this grant and will be hosting an adaptive paddling workshop on August 20-21 for disabled veterans. Please help us spread the word. Thank you Joe Moore and Adaptive Expeditions for this awesome opportunity to help grow our Paracanoe program at LCKC! ... See MoreSee Less

Adaptive Expeditions, Charleston’s Paralympic Sports Club and Disabled Sports USA Chapter, is excited to take delivery of forty Paracanoe kayaks, Paralympic level sprint racing kayaks. Adaptive Expeditions imported the kayaks into Charleston, SC from Nelo Kayaks in Vila do Conde, Portugal. The shipment is part of Adaptive Expeditions’ contract to manage two grants for ACA: Canoe - Kayak - SUP - Raft - Rescue and USA Canoe/Kayak, the National Governing Body for the Paralympic sport of Paracanoe. The grants were awarded from the Craig H Neilsen Foundation and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. No official count of USA Paracanoe exists, but estimates indicate that this shipment nearly triples the number of Paracanoe within US borders. As part of the grant management contract, Adaptive Expeditions' executive director, Joe Moore, will lead eight two-day adaptive kayak trainings around the country this summer. The goal of both grants is to better enable USA based adaptive kayak clubs to develop elite level Paralympic athletes for the 2020 Paralympic games. Paracanoe will debut at the Paralympic Games later this year in Rio. Adaptive Expeditions will have a Paracanoe and a Viper 55 training boat available at its Charleston, SC location.
