What is Leslie’s Accessible Walks?
I moved to the Mendocino Coast in August of 2021. Shortly after I moved here I fell during a walk in the Town of Mendocino and realized the progressive neuromuscular condition I’ve lived with had entered a new stage. I could no longer trust my balance and required mobility assistance. Now I use a walker or wheelchair in the house and out in the world.
Thanks to the Mendocino Land Trust, I had the opportunity to use a beach wheelchair. Gradually, I’ve learned more about accessibility and what I can do here on the Coast.
I became involved with the Blue Zone Project and challenged myself to organize a series of Walk & Roll Moais (a series of 10 mostly accessible walks). I’ve decided to continue with free monthly walks around the Mendocino Coast area. I hope you’ll consider joining us. Hey, I won a contest!
