UNH Car Club has met with Northeast Passage to do a collaboration fundraiser event called Shifting Stigma.
Northeast Passage (NEP) is a therapeutic recreation and adaptive sports non-profit organization. NEP has been a program of the RMP Department at UNH and serves people with disabilities throughout New England.
The NEP Wheelchair Rugby Team was created in 2007 and competes in the Atlantic North Conference of the U.S. Quad-Rugby Association. The NEP Wildcats consist of athletes from New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont. They host an annual tournament in September at UNH’s Hamel Recreation Center and have competed in tournaments in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Montreal, Florida, and Maryland.
Along with that, these athletes have some pretty cool adaptive cars, sharing the same passion for vehicles that we all have. Let’s crush the stigma that an adaptive vehicle has to be something like a minivan and see what adaptive vehicles are like now.
Admission to show a car for this event is $10 at the gate, walk on foot traffic is free. All proceeds will be going to Northeast Passage to better fund this organization that has made such a big impact on the North East.
All cars, trucks, and bikes are welcome!! This event will be in A-Lot, (5 Gables Way, Durham NH, 03824). All drivers must be on their best behavior. We have a zero tolerance for any violations. All burnouts, excessive revving, loud music, wheelies, and drifting are STRICTLY prohibited.
