PeerConnect: Fitness and Exercise Tips

August 10, 2019 @ 12:00 pm CDT - 1:00 pm CDT

Exercise is vital for the body and mind. But exercising can sometimes be a challenge for those with spinal cord injuries/disabilities. The good news is that there are dozens of ways that you can stay fit. This PeerConnect session gives you an opportunity to learn about different ways to exercise and get in shape, all while having fun, too!

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.
