Quality of Life Grants: 1st Cycle 2009: Actively Achieving
Northeast DuPage Special Recreation Association (NEDSRA)
This grant will help to fund the Veterans' Well-being and Fitness Initiative: Healthy Minds - Healthy Bodies, a well-being and fitness program for 30 to 50 active duty disabled veterans in DuPage County. Disabled veterans wounded in active duty will benefit from a fitness center membership (along with a membership for a friend or family member) to Club Fitness in Addison, as well as one-to-one introduction to universal design fitness center equipment, aquatic facilities, and access to personal trainers. NEDSRA staff, with the help of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), will provide the necessary training for the personal trainers in order to optimize participant success. Grant funds will help to fund programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
