These websites feature an array of recreational opportunities available to individuals with spinal cord injuries. Activities include adaptive sports, such as wheelchair basketball and tennis, as well as outdoor recreational events, camps for families, art programs, and adaptive dance. Accessible travel programs and other transportation resources to support driving, including providers to purchase or rent adaptive vans or vehicles, are also included.
BACKBONES exists to provide free support for people with spinal cord injury and their families. Through our network we facilitate telephone, in-person, or web-based connections and encourage growth by the sharing of experiences and ideas. As a host to events, BACKBONES creates an inviting atmosphere where people can ask questions, learn from each other informally, and make lasting friendships. Select “Connect” on the main toolbar to join the network or “Get Involved” to volunteer.
