Sorry Warriors on Wheels is on HOLD because I had a baby April 21, 2021. Looking forward to starting it up again soon. Hopefully January 2023. This little amazing child is what we have been spending our time on the last 2 years. What a wonderful ride.
Project Awaken presents Warriors on Wheels (WoW) support group the third Tuesday of the month @ 7pm CST. This support group is for women and men who use wheelchairs that want to get out and take action!! Take actions to enhance their own and other’s lives by building a supportive community that pushes each other to become unstoppable in the lives we want to live. Some events we will split between men and women for privacy. These groups will have the women’s section to start at 7pm and the men’s at 8pm.
