Year 2

The Social, Healthy, Adaptive Recreation & Exercise (SHARE) project improves health outcomes for people with/without paralysis through recreational events. Each event is integrated and adapted for people of all abilities. The purpose of each event is to promote community inclusion, encourage healthy activity routines, and lessen the impact of secondary health complications associated with paralysis. SHARE is innovative in that it emphasizes the commonality between people with/without paralysis, features continuous wellness events throughout the year, and creates a venue that fosters discussion and understanding about health and wellness from varying perspectives. SHARE will be led by Independence Place and supported by Cardinal Hill Hospital’s Spinal Cord Injury unit, the LFUCG Division of Aging and Disability Services and Parks and Recreation.
