Make a Wish Fishing Day
Austin is a 13 year old boy with MD and confined to an electric wheelchair had his Mom reporting on Facebook that June 10th was an amazing day spent on Utah Lake with Captain Steve of Hand In Hand Outdoors, a nonprofit organization and his crew along with Austin’s grandparents, his friend Trevor (who is also confined to a wheelchair with MD) and his family, and two of Austin’s cousins. The day spent fishing on the 35 foot pontoon boat was filled with fun catching fish, enjoying the smiles on everyone’s faces and boating on a beautiful day on Utah Lake.
Despite limited mobility, Austin was able to reel in several fish and this added to his wonderful fishing adventure surrounded by family and friends. Austin’s Mom ended her report by saying: “We definitely made some wonderful memories in the nice warm sun on a beautiful, wheelchair accessible boat. Thank you Captain Steve!”
That says it all and demonstrates the value of this wonderful organization dedicated to offering free fishing and boating for Vets, Wounded Warriors, and kids/adults with disabilities, especially wheelchair-bound.
