The Town of Quantico, in cooperation with the American Canoe Association (ACA) and USA Canoe/Kayak (USACK), are looking for eligible disabled Veterans to participate in their upcoming Racer Quest for Veterans with Disabilities project being held on May 27th and 28th.
This project is being funded through the Veterans Administration’s (VA) Adaptive Sports Grant (ASG) Program.

On Saturday May 27th the project will focus on introducing disabled Veterans to the whole-life health benefits of using a kayak as a recreational activity. On Sunday May 28th the project will allow disabled Veterans to participate in the Racer Quest program which is a gateway to competing at the national and international levels in paddlesport as an elite athlete.
