VAMC to teach adaptive cycling

The Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center (JCMVAMC) will hold an Adaptive Cycling Clinic for veterans from 1 to 3 p.m. May 19 in the hospital atrium, which is located on the third floor of the bed tower.

Veterans will have the opportunity to ride and learn more about adaptive tricycles, which will be provided by The Center for Individuals with Physical Challenges in Tulsa.

JCMVAMC created the Adaptive Sports Program for veterans with physical and visual disabilities to give them the opportunity to become involved in adaptive sports, outdoor recreation, fitness programs and leisure activity. Through this program, veterans are able to re-establish an independent and active lifestyle in their communities and become mentors for other veterans and service members.
