WHIM Events - What's Happening?

The Wheelchair Health In Motion (WHIM) program is more than weekly physical workouts and positive peer support. Throughout the year, WHIM holds different activities and events that compliment the exercise and social features of this program. These special activities and events allow the entire WHIM community to get together.
