Ability Charlotte “Cycles to the Sea”
April 2014, Charlotte, NC– Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics is pleased to announce its participation in the 14th Annual Cycle to the Sea. The event is scheduled for April 24-26, 2014 and is held by the Adaptive Sports and Adventures Program (ASAP) Fund. Tyler Dunham, CPO, of Ability’s Charlotte patient care center will participate in the ride. Together, over 40 adaptive and able-bodied cyclists will ride 180 miles from Charlotte, NC to North Myrtle Beach, SC. The event raises over $50,000.
ASAP serves as a community program within Carolina’s Rehabilitation that addresses the functional and therapeutic needs of inpatients and outpatients through sports, recreation and outdoor activities. The program helps patients to develop an active lifestyle through community and program events in order to achieve a lifestyle without barriers and limits.
“I am thrilled to be doing the cycle to the sea this year,” explains Tyler Dunham, Certified Prosthetist & Orthotist, “I am new to Ability’s Charlotte office so I look forward to riding for a great cause as well as getting to know the folks at Carolina’s Rehab. Ability not only treats these types of patients but we are always looking to refer patients to programs such as the Adaptive Sports Program through Carolina’s Rehabilitation. It is important to give back.”
