Adventure Awaits - Outdoor Inclusion in the Pacific Northwest

Funder: Craig H Neilsen Foundation

Funding period
USD 33 K

Abstract
Oregon Adaptive Sports' "Adventure Awaits, Outdoor Inclusion in the Pacific Northwest" project, aims to expand opportunities for individuals living with SCI residing in Oregon and Washington to increase independence and enhance quality of life. In partnership with Craig Hospital and Destination Rehab, the Adventure Awaits project will fund critical pieces of adaptive sports equipment, off-road handcycles and adaptive mountain bikes, designed specifically for individuals with SCI. This innovative project combines the expertise of adaptive sport providers, hospital based recreation therapists, and community based physical therapists to create high quality and well rounded experiences for individuals with SCI that align with long-term rehabilitation and recovery goals.

Through this project, Oregon Adaptive Sports, a leading provider of adaptive sports in the Pacific Northwest, will increase the annual number of individuals with SCI served by 50% and increase outdoor experiences for these individuals by nearly 70%. Well known for its abundant outdoor recreation opportunities, the Pacific Northwest is lacking in resources and programs designed specifically for individuals with SCI. A recent Oregon Adaptive Sports participant with SCI was quoted saying "to me this has been much more than a recreational experience, this has changed my life." Access to the outdoors has been proven to positively affect any individual's quality of life and is cited as being even more significant for individuals with disabilities. Furthermore, in the Pacific Northwest, access to the outdoors for many is not just an enhancement to the rest of a person's life, it is what that person lives for. The Adventure Awaits project will create more of these opportunities for individuals with SCI and directly carry out the mission of the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, improving the quality of life for individuals affected by and living with spinal cord injury. (CHN: COandI chn:wdg)
