National Paralysis Resource Center Partners to Support Adaptive Fitness

February 28, 2022

The National Paralysis Resource Center (operated by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation) has launched a new partnership with Kakana to offer free adaptive fitness opportunities people living with paralysis.

Kakana is a groundbreaking streaming fitness platform designed to be inclusive and accessible. Kakana (meaning bold, determined, daring and courageous) was created to offer intense and engaging fitness classes both live and on-demand, to people of all abilities. The inclusive and unique platform also includes fitness instructors with disabilities to guide the audience through each workout.

The new partnership kicked off in February, with an educational webinar featuring Kakana Instructor Jesi Stracham, Reeve Foundation's PRC Program Coordinator TJ Griffin, Para-Powerlifter Garrison Redd, Team USA Wheelchair Rugby Chuck Aoki, and Kakana’s Founder Matt Ney.

This new collaboration is part of the PRC's efforts to expand the availability of inclusive, accessible physical fitness opportunities. Register and learn more.
