Kentwood Adaptive Water Ski Program
The City of Kentwood is the only municipality in the state of Michigan to offer an Adaptive Water Ski program. This program empowers over 100 children and adults throughout Michigan with a variety of physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities. These individuals get to experience freedom and mobility in the water.
A critical component of our Adaptive Water Ski program is the use of two jet skis. These watercraft trail the skier on either side and have a “jumper” riding side saddle on the back, ready to jump off and assist the skier immediately after a fall. This is imperative especially for our skiers who experience paralysis, weakness, or profound muscle tone. Funds raised at this year’s event will go towards purchasing new jet skis for the program.
