Ithaca College was recently awarded a Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grant to support its Shoulder Fitness Program for individuals with paraplegia. The Shoulder Fitness Program is a healthy shoulder initiative for individuals with paralysis that was established at the Pieters Family Life Center, the region’s only wheel-chair accessible community fitness facility. The program enables individuals with paralysis the ability to safely work out through a supervised fitness routine designed specifically for wheelchair users.

The PFLC collaborated with Ithaca College Rochester Center and donated the use of space within the fitness area, which – with its Cybex Total Access equipment – serves people with and without disabilities. One participant spoke to his experience in the fitness room saying, “It has made a positive impact on me, especially strengthening old friendships and developing new ones. It’s nice to work out with friends rather than go at it alone.”

For more information on the PFLC’s accessible fitness facility, stop in for a tour or call (585) 487-3500.
