Brandon and the surrounding Westman area has no official organization promoting and / or coordinating wheelchair sports for adults.
Help us change that!
We are a non-profit community group of volunteers with an interest in making a difference for people with mobility impairments in Westman. We receive funding from Government grants, organizations and public donations with 100% of the money going straight back to developing wheelchair sports.
Physical activity benefits range from health and wellness to increased emotional quality of life. Yet, 51% of Canadians are inactive and for Canadians with disabilities, this number is even higher.
Accessible wheelchair sports for all people in Westman.
Improved mood, reduced anxiety and depression, an increase of self-esteem and belief in oneself.
New experiences, new friendships, a sense of belonging, a countering of stigma and increase in fun!
Greater likelihood of employment, with less absenteeism and enhanced productivity.
Overall improvement in health, longevity, strength and endurance. A reduced risk of many chronic diseases.
Who Could Benefit?
We are not just for regular wheelchair users. People that could benefit in the Westman area are those adults with any mobility impairments.
