As part of the PACE dedication to research, its Canadian Disability Participation Project – led by Dr. Kathleen Martin Ginis – unites nearly 50 academics, community organizations, government agencies and a private sector organization in the common goal of enhancing community participation among Canadians with a physical disability. This program of research and knowledge translation addresses the three domains from surveys of Canadians with disabilities that consistently emerge as the most desired forms of participation and the most restricted: Employment, Community Mobility, and Physical Activity. Their evidence-based practices aim to enhance both the number of people with disabilities who participate in these domains, as well as the quality of participation.
Led by Dr. Andrei Krassioukov of ICORD, the CHOICES Program unites leading researchers from across Canada to examine cardiovascular health benefits to individuals with chronic spinal cord injury through optimized exercise and specific education, and research to test the efficacy of different exercise modalities for improving cardiovascular health.
Without donations, the quality of their programming will decline, as will the number of clients to whom they can offer their services. For this reason, and many more, Hooper Law is sponsoring PACE’s essential Go Fund Me campaign.
We invite you to visit their campaign page if you see the value in their programming and would like to make a donation: http://alumni.mcmaster.ca/s/1439/ifundmac/project.aspx?sid=1439&gid=1&pgid=9540&cid=17175&ecid=17175&crid=0&calpgid=3308&calcid=5368
