Spinal cord injuries can happen in an instant. One second, you’re carving powdery arcs down the frontside of Mad River, free-soloing in a rock gym, screwing around with friends on the sledding hill. And then you’re in a wheelchair. Permanently. Adaptive athletes are you and me and all our friends who had a supremely unlucky day. And if, like you and me, a person finds their freedom, release, and peace on the slopes, in the mountains, and nature, you can imagine how desperately that person would be to return to the places and activities they love.
Kelly Brush Foundation launched Active Project, the first online community by and for people with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) who want to participate in adaptive sports, their friends, family and caregivers, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, for that reason… to help people living with paralysis get back to being active.
