Your News U.S. Paralympics, NWSRA Partner to Create Sports Club -BYLN- Submitted by Northwest Special Recreation Association


U.S. Paralympics, a division of the U.S. Olympic Committee, and Northwest Special Recreation Association have partnered to create Paralympic Sport Club Northwest Suburban Chicago.

Paralympic Sport Club Northwest Suburban Chicago is a community-based sports club developed to involve youth and adults, including active duty service members and veterans, with physical and visual disabilities in ongoing sports and physical activity, regardless of skill level. All programs and activities will be based in the Northwest suburbs and run by NWSRA

"U.S. Paralympics is dedicated to creating opportunities for individuals with physical and visual disabilities to be physically active in their own communities. Participation in physical activity enhances not only self-esteem and peer relationships, but also results in greater achievement, better overall health and higher quality of life," said Mike Mushett, U.S. Paralympics director of Community Programs.

With 21 million Americans living with a physical or visual disability, including thousands of military personnel who've been severely injured while on active duty, this is an important community need.

Tracey Crawford, executive director of NWSRA, stated, "We are proud to partner with U.S. Paralympics and to continue providing outstanding opportunities through recreation for individuals with disabilities. We look forward to sharing in the successes that the athletes will experience through Paralympic sport.
