  • “Hands On” – an event following ThinkFirst classroom presentations. A local hospital and vendors bring wheelchairs and other equipment for students to try and the Spinal Cord Injury Association has them participate in several activities to help simulate the loss of hand function that may occur following the onset of paralysis. A service-dog demonstration is also presented.
