Wheelchair curling builds strength, independence for those with spinal cord injury

A group of curlers were taking part in a game of wheelchair curling on Saturday. It was a fundraiser for First Steps Wellness Centre, a rehab clinic that works with people who have spinal cord injuries. It was also a fun way for people in wheelchairs to build their strength and independence.

“Everybody’s having fun. It’s fun because anybody can do it. You don’t have to get out and stretch your muscles and tear everything apart. You just get out and curl. You push the rock and it’s fun, anybody can do it,” said organizer Owen Carlson.
