This grant will help to underwrite training and travel expenses for the "Team Odyssey" Paralympic Sonar USA Sailing Team for the Beijing 2008 Paralympics. Team Odyssey consists of a man who is a paraplegic, a man who is an arm amputee at the shoulder, and a man who is a below-knee leg amputee. Sail-Habitation got involved in September 2006 when a local Ocean County resident was named to the United States Disabled Sailing Team. Sail Habilitation is a chapter member of Disabled Sports USA and provides comprehensive sailing opportunities for people with physical challenges and special needs. This grant was funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
