Summary of Event: (500 Character Count Max)

The ability to participate in meaningful activities is essential for all people to be able to live a balanced life and maintain both mental and physical well-being. People with disabilities may have increased barriers that prevent participation in activities that are meaningful to them and community access. The inability of an individual to participate in these meaningful activities may lead to an occupational imbalance or occupational role disruption, ultimately leading to decreased quality of life. Adaptive sports promote engagement in occupations including, but not limited to, health management and maintenance, self-efficacy, work, play, leisure and social participation. These occupations can lead to increased involvement in volunteerism and mentoring opportunities as well as influence relationships with others.
