Year 1

Our project is the continuation and expansion of a kick start adaptive sports program in south central Kentucky. The program is about a year old, and still in the recruitment and growth stage. While we have seen growth in number of able-bodied participants, we are still working to extend our reach to participants with paralysis and other physical disabilities. Through the Wellness Edge grant program, we plan to continue offering our consistent adaptive sport programs, while also hosting clinics and a recognized tournament to help spread awareness of our program in this area. We believe this will allow us to recruit and create more access to recreation and sport for those with paralysis.
