Adaptive Sports & Adventures Program Recognized for Outstanding Service
Carolinas Rehabilitation’s Adaptive Sports & Adventures Program, part of Carolinas HealthCare System, has won an Organizational Award from the North Carolina Rehabilitation Association.
The Organizational Award goes to an agency or an organization that has an outstanding record of service and one that has demonstrated effective concern for the care, treatment, education, or rehabilitation of persons with disabilities.
“This award is an incredible honor for the Adaptive Sports & Adventures Program as it reaffirms that we are fulfilling our commitment of providing quality adaptive sport and recreation programs to the community," said Jackie Campbell, licensed recreational therapist/CTRS, ATRIC at Carolinas Rehabilitation."
Eligibility for this award would be an organization that has established a unique service program to better serve persons with disabilities or an organization that has - through its initiatives and creativity - developed programs that have contributed significantly to the rehabilitation movement or acted as a catalyst to better integrate, coordinate, and develop services to persons with disabilities. ASAP has met all of these criteria.
"It is humbling that our efforts have been recognized in this way, and an honor such as this will serve as a catalyst for our future efforts to expand the programs we are able to offer to those with a disability," said Campbell. "I am fortunate to not only be a part of the Carolinas HealthCare System team, but also a part of so many families’ journey to living a full life with a disability.”
The award will be presented to a representative of ASAP on Thursday, August 29, during a breakfast awards ceremony.
