Your virtual programming of yoga, game nights, and particularly socializing on Zoom, has allowed otherwise isolated people to connect with the program, their own physical self and each other. We are sharing our fears and joys with people who are sharing similar experiences. Recently, during a yoga session, we were able to support a young woman who was feeling alone. By coming together as a community, we were able to make her smile by the end of the session. Pam, Brooks Adaptive Sports and Recreation participant
Six months into my Guillain-Barré syndrome recovery, I was invited to a bowling night. I was nervous and anxious as a quadriplegic; I surely wouldn’t be able to bowl. But they found a way. Using lane bumpers and a launch ramp, volunteers were able to help me get the ball rolling. Now I have participated in numerous activities ranging from yoga and skeet shooting to bocce ball, horseback riding and more. Bob, Brooks Adaptive Sports and Recreation participant
I was recently reflecting on the things in my life I am grateful for. And immediately thought of the Brooks programs I have had access to. Adaptive Sports and Recreation has been the best motivation to get up and out and be with people, as well as providing fun exercise. I can't say enough good things about the program. Thank you.
