Kayak New Mexico, Inc. is an all-volunteer non-profit organization transforming lives through adaptive kayaking programs. Participants include children and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities or life-threatening medical conditions. The organization will once again have Adaptive Kayaking Open Houses at Wyndham Albuquerque Hotel & Conference Center’s ABQ Surf N’ Slide starting in February 2018 after the one-year hiatus wherein the hotel and water park was renovated.
Their motto: “Come as you are!” encourages people of all ages and abilities to join in. Whether the goals are physical, cognitive, social or emotional, adaptive kayaking can assist individuals on their journey to a superior quality of life. By adapting the environment, equipment, or teaching method, the group is able to accommodate most people into their programs.
