First Coast Freedom Playground Heel-n-Wheel, hand cycle, 5K and 10K, Nov. 13th

Fernandina love a parade and on Saturday November 13 at 9:30am several hundred people are getting ready to "heel it" down a one mile course pushing wheelchairs to raise funds and awareness of the need for community inclusion...especially at their city parks. Come cheer them on as they wheel-n-walk down Atlantic Ave.First Coast Freedom Playground is sponsoring a Heel-n-Wheel, hand cycle, 5K and 10K race beginning at 8am on Saturday at Atlantic Rec Center in Fernandina Beach, the future site of the unique playground that promises "freedom" to move through its features whether you are on foot or in a wheelchair. Sign up for the races at www.firstcoastheelnwheel.com .

Not only are participants of all ages & abilities involved in the race but invite you to join in the old time carnival  from 10am to 2pm with games, music, demonstrations and food. Families are welcome to come see what a power wheelchair soccer game looks like, experience "wheeling" in a wheelchair during the "cake roll" and be part of a boy scout all access campsite. Parking is available on site for free.
