Battle of the Boards Cornhole Tournament was a success!
SAIL, Disability Network of the U.P. hosted a Battle of the Boards Cornhole Tournament on August 21, 2021, at the SAIL office (1200 Wright St. Marquette, MI). The tournament consisted of 20 two person teams in a double elimination tournament playing the fun “backyard” style game of cornhole.
All proceeds from the tournament will go into the One in Five Annual Appeal for the purchase of the Action Track Chair. The Action Track Chair assists persons with mobility disabilities access outdoor areas where a regular wheelchair is unable to navigate the terrain. SAIL will utilize this chair in the Single Point for Activities and Recreation (SPAR) and U.P. Vets SERVED health and wellness programming to assist individuals living with a disability get out on trails, sand, and snow to fully experience the beautiful U.P. outdoors!

This device will allow our consumers to actively participate in events on terrain that has previously been inaccessible to them.” said Sarah Peurakoski, SAIL Executive Director.
