Best Day Foundation
$10,000 - Adaptive Sports
This grant will help to support a unique initiative that provides beach and snow events for individuals with paralysis and their families in California, New Jersey and New York. Current activities offered include surfing, body boarding, kayaking, stand up paddling (SUP), outrigger canoeing, and snow sports. Grant funds will help to underwrite the purchase of 6 full-size beach-access wheelchairs that enable participants to traverse sandy beaches and access the water. The equipment will be shared with other programs when needed to broaden the reach of the activities. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000838-01).
