Welcome to Turning Point
Life Beyond the Sidewalk
Turning POINT is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with 36 years experience providing FREE adapted outdoor recreational activities and adventures for those with physical challenges. Each month there are activities scheduled to help those with mobility impairments stay active!
This year we are joining the fundraiser - North Texas Giving Day - on September 17 to help enhance our programs and update our adaptive equipment. North Texas Giving Day is the largest online giving event, raising $26.3 million for 1,580 nonprofits in 2014. Your donation to Turning POINT will enable us to continue to provide our outdoor programs at no cost to our participants and their family. Our equipment wish list includes: universal kayak stabilizers, kayak universal seat, kayak paddle hand adaptation, power fish n' power reel, mechanical trigger bite for shotgun, electronic earmuffs, in-line draw loc for bow, chair seat lift for kayaks and handcycles, Honda 4 stroke boat motor for pontoon boat...
Our monthly activities are taking the month of September off. Handcycling will again be held the 2nd Saturday of each month. Locations will change occassionally to ride various trails throughout the metroplex. October's ride will be held at Huffhines Park, 1500 Apollo Rd, Richardson. It will start at 10am. Beginners and advanced riders are welcomed. Length of ride depends on your experience level. Boating and/or fishing from a pontoon boat on Lake Ray Hubbard is also taking a break at the repair shop. The pontoon goes out the 1st and 3rd weekend of the month, but you do need to make a reservation with kmumford@TurningPointNation.org
Maybe you or someone you know would like to get involved with us - we welcome members, volunteers, sponsors and donors.
