Quality of Life Grants: 2nd Cycle 2008: Actively Achieving
Spina Bifida Association of Western Pennsylvania
This grant will help to support a project entitled “Gaming our Way to Health,” which will use a GameCycle to motivate the young adults of residential programs to associate exercise with fun, and improve health and wellness outcomes of people with disabilities related to paralysis, particularly spinal bifida.
Specifically, the grant will help to underwrite the purchase of a GameCycle System and software, one-year extended warranty, and shipping. The GameCycle will be housed at the life-long living community center at the Spina Bifida Association of Western Pennsylvania campus. This grant was funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
