Peer Connect: Adaptive Sports and Finding a Community

October 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm CDT

Looking to participate in a new sport or activity but don’t know what’s out there? Then this is the perfect PeerConnect meeting for you. Learn more about the vast world of adaptive sports and how to join a sport/team that is perfect for you. Sports are a great way to build close peer relationships and get involved with your local SCI community.

BACKBONES PeerConnect is a program offering monthly online meetups for people in the spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D) community looking to connect with their peers. Whether you have many years post injury, or if you are new to the community, PeerConnect is a great way to meet others, share your story, and learn from other people with similar experiences to you.


PeerConnect meetups will be offered monthly via Zoom Video Conferencing. Up to 10 participants with SCI/D will be allowed to register via EventBrite. There will be a waitlist – in the case a registered participant must cancel we will offer the spot to the next person on the list. Participants will be emailed the meeting link a few days prior to the session and the morning of.

PeerConnect sessions will be started and moderated by a person with SCI/D who has experience with peer support and mentoring.
