Shedding a light on a vibrant community, Re-Inventing The Wheel documents the lives of active wheelchair users in the Okanagan Valley. From sailing to golfing, camping to biking, there isn’t anything this group can’t do. This is not your average peer support group and this is not your average ‘inspirational’ story you’d see in the news. Follow along as this tribe of wheelies band together and aid newly injured Dan McLean and his wife Colleen into Dan’s first year of life on wheels.
