The Simmons First Foundation has joined with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation to sponsor a new initiative to make the outdoors more accessible to all Arkansans.

They donated a check to the AGFF for more than $60,000 to sponsor a new adaptive recreation program to increase outdoor opportunities and awareness for mobility-impaired individuals.

The funds will be used to purchase equipment such as off–road track chairs. These electric wheelchairs are equipped with rubberized tracks to allow the user to overcome many types of terrain, providing greater access to hunting, shooting, angling and wildlife-watching opportunities for mobility-impaired individuals.
