ASIRI

The primary goals of the Michigan Adaptive Sports and Inclusive Recreation Initiative (ASIRI) are to increase awareness about, knowledge of, access to, and participation in adaptive sports and fitness among children with and without disabilities in the public school system. Our goal is to embed adaptive sports and inclusive recreation as part of the physical education curriculum in Michigan public schools. This initiative aims to support the wellness and quality of life of people with disabilities and create inclusive opportunities for people with and without disabilities to come together.

RX To Play

Our program understands that there is a lack of awareness  and opportunities for physical activity for individuals with disabilities. Our submitted grant proposal, entitled ““Prescription to Play” (Rx to Play), will connect individuals living with spinal cord injuries (SCI) to local physical activity resources and provide continued support in the rehabilitation process. Proposed outcomes include an increase in awareness of, access to, and participation in physical activity programming for individuals living with SCI in Southeast Michigan.’
