Abstract
The title of this project is the Northwest Wheelchair Tennis Association event support and SCI player development project. This project will fund a year round regional wheelchair tennis program in Oregon and Southwest Washington. It consists of one three day long adult camp, the 31st annual NW Sectional Wheelchair Tennis Championship and player development funding for up to eleven players with SCI. The expected outcome of Neilsen Foundation support will be a comprehensive adaptive sports program that will serve over 40 adults and youth with SCI in Oregon and Southwest Washington. The NWTA is an all volunteer organization founded in 1988 by a group of SCI survivors to create a welcoming and supportive adaptive sports community for people with SCI. We provide everything a person needs to get started in wheelchair tennis. Through our tennis programs and mentoring, new friendships are created and individuals begin to see possibilities where there once were limits, and become empowered to reintegrate into the community. This project goes beyond adaptive sports. Our goal is to provide the spark to empower people once devastated by injury to lead healthy, productive and independent lives with SCI. The motto of the NWTA is “rebuilding lives one swing at a time since 1988” and our success stories are numerous. The significance of Neilsen Foundation support is that it will enable us to serve a greater number of SCI survivors over a larger geographic area than current fundraising allows. It will enable us to leverage our existing fundraising to build a financial reserve sufficient to fund our programs after Neilsen grant funds have been expended. Given our history of success, Neilsen Foundation support will ensure that we can continue to empower individuals with SCI in Oregon and Southwest Washington to live independently and enjoy improved emotional and physical well being through participation in our established sports and recreation programs.
