“The bus will transport otherwise un-served individuals to weekly Adaptive Sport & Recreation activities and special events, transport already-served individuals to more activities than they were previously able to participate in, transport out of town athletes during Brooks sponsored special events and transport our athletes to out of town events,” said Alice Krauss, Manager of the Brooks Adaptive Sports & Recreation Program.

The Brooks Adaptive Sports & Recreation Program is just one of the many Brooks’ programs and services available to those recovering from a spinal cord injury, stroke, brain injury or other illnesses and/or debilitating injuries as part of their road to recovery. Whether it’s wheelchair basketball, quad rugby, tennis, handcycling or adaptive rowing, those living with physical disabilities can rebuild their strength and sense of independence while they build self-confidence, learn new life skills and even make new friends.

All ages and abilities are welcome to participate at either a recreational or competitive level.
