How your donation supports Magee's Wheelchair Sports Programs
Magee Rehabilitation has a long history of supporting the local community of individuals with disabilities. Magee's Wheelchair Sports Program heightens independence and improves quality-of-life. Getting involved with Magee's sports programs helps people with disabilities to reach for personal health and wellness goals. In addition to experiencing the enjoyment and excitement of competing, those goals include:
- Improved fitness and overall health through physical activity
- Increased opportunities for social contact among peers, resulting in enhanced social skills
- Increased self-esteem and confidence
- Adaptation to disability through interaction with peers and role models
- Leisure counseling
- Leisure education
Magee athletes have competed in regional, national and international sports events, including the Paralympics. Although some of our athletes compete at an elite level, Magee welcomes all individuals who are disabled looking for a recreational outlet. We emphasize healthy lifestyle through regular physical fitness activities.
