Get Out and Play

Outdoor Recreation and Fitness Program

Here is your chance to start a new exercise routine, learn more about outdoor recreation or just add some different fitness options to your already active lifestyle. Ride a local trail, take a walk with your family, play tennis or basketball at your local court -you will have options to try all of this and more!

What you need to know:

  • FAAST is partnering with several organizations around the state to offer different types of handcycles and sports chairs to individuals with spinal cord injuries for 30-day loan periods.
  • These programs will kick off in April, so now is the time to get your name on the list and be one of the first to try out the brand-new equipment. There will also be tabletop handcycles and wheelchair fitness equipment available.

Contact Eric Reed at FAAST for more information about how you can participate –; 850-487-3278, ext. 104.

This program is possible thanks to funding from the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation and support from Living Spinal and Invacare.
