$3,000 - Adaptive Sports
This grant will help to support the West Side Sport programs, which are designed and adapted for children with physical disabilities to compete in team sports and swimming activities during the summer of 2012. With the help of trained peer volunteer partners, children with physical disabilities engage in fun sports activities such as volleyball, football, soccer, baseball and swimming, among other activities. West Side Sports programs encourage participants to engage in healthy physical and social activities during the summer months, while challenging themselves to try new activities and build self-esteem through their success. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000838-01).
