Abstract
The SCI Recreation & Fitness Outreach Project aims to leverage a well-established Bay Area SCI community (as evidenced by the strong number of support groups and rehab facilities in the region) and address a major barrier to participation by individuals with SCI – the lack of a sustained outreach effort to the Bay Area SCI population. Building on BORP’s existing programmatic efforts of providing a strong menu of adaptive fitness and recreation opportunities, especially those offered at our Adaptive Cycling and Fitness Centers, BORP will develop and implement a three pronged strategy to engage the SCI community: a dedicated outreach initiative, specifically aimed at individuals with SCI, the development of stronger relationships with SCI support groups and other actors in the SCI universe (VA hospitals, rehab medical centers, and other organizations that provide services to individuals with SCI such as Independent Living Centers), and an enriched menu of activities for the SCI community. The Project will offer an expanded set of program offerings that will include the development of new ‘healthy lifestyle’ and fitness classes and workshop (e.g., Chair Yoga, Nutrition for People with SCI, Upper Body Strength & Conditioning, Zumba); quarterly rowing and climbing clinics, the addition of quarterly outdoor hiking and cycling trips through our Adventures and Outings and Cycling programs, and an Adaptive Sports & Recreation Festival - all with targeted outreach to the SCI community. Through these activities, the SCI Recreation & Fitness Outreach Project will increase the number of new individuals with SCI participating in BORP’s adaptive recreation and fitness programming, and increase the frequency of participation of current and past participants. The outreach effort, which will include a new mentoring component, along with the addition of the new program offerings will motivate newcomers to try BORP activities and enable them to discover the benefits that accompany participation in BORP’s programs. The overall desired outcome of this Project (and all BORP programming) is to increase the quality of life of our participants by making accessible recreational and fitness programming available. Specific project objectives include providing participants with an increased ability to lead an active lifestyle, increased independence and self-sufficiency, inclusion in a strong social community with supportive relationships, increased opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, and increased skills and confidence to engage in fitness and recreation activities The proposed SCI Recreation & Fitness Outreach Project is 100% congruent with the Foundation’s mission of empowering individuals with SCI to live independently with greater emotional and physical well-being and the COI program's goal of creating opportunities for increased independence through sports and recreation programming.
