Mark Wellman’s Adventure Day at the Sparks Marina

Sparks, NV – People with disabilities and their friends and family members are invited to explore a variety of sports during the Mark Wellman’s Adventure Day event at the Sparks Marina on Sunday, June 6, 2021. The free event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Mark Wellman Adventure Day gives participants access to a broad range of adaptive equipment to try adventure sports such as rock climbing, kayaking and cycling. The event’s namesake, Mark Wellman, is a two-time Para-Olympian, as well as a nationally acclaimed author, filmmaker and motivational speaker. Wellman will be at the Sparks Marina to assist and provide equipment for participants who want to scale the climbing wall.

“We are so excited that we can bring this great event back to the beautiful Sparks Marina,” said Tanja Ramociotti, City of Sparks Recreation Specialist.  “All ages and abilities are encouraged to come out and try something new.”

Participants, parents or guardians are asked to complete a participant waiver prior to the event or when they arrive at the Sparks Marina. The waiver is available here.

Closed-toed shoes are required, and sunscreen is recommended.
