RAD Society hasn't added a story.
Everyone should have access to physical activity regardless of who they are.
Unfortunately, people who need specialized equipment to continue to play their way have great difficulty accessing this expensive adaptive gear.
Fortunately, RAD Society has the ability to make this adaptive gear accessible and affordable.
Sadly, there are hundreds of thousands of people in Canada that
do not have access to the outdoors or the specialized gear they need
to get there.
Luckily, 100% of your registration fee + donation in this years' 7th annual RAD Polar Plunge (tax receipts for all donations available) is going to help get one more person access to adaptive recreation -- the RAD Gear Box, a 'shop' full of fun outdoor adaptive devices that humans can rent and loan for short-term fun or to try it before they buy it. (One more person is an understatement!)
Please help us improve the lives of those with physical challenges one person at a time.
By providing this access we can help people who feel they have been left behind, who feel excluded by the current lack of support for healthy living (mentally and physically). With outdoor access and recreation individuals' sense of well-being improves, their physical fitness improves, and overall better health with an increased willingness to participate in their community surrounding them. These are just some of the positive outcomes of play.
Let's work together to play together! Let's leave no one sitting still!
100% of your $20/individual registration fee, all swag sales
and any additional contributions
are going towards getting butts in seats!
... Outdoor Access, Equipment Access, Adventure Experiences ...
RAD has the GearBox, a rental adaptive gear hub and prototype, in high gear! Development in Langford, Victoria, and Invermere is happening as we push to open the doors to outdoor recreation - biking, hiking, paddling, beach, water! #PlayYourWay
Pledge to plunge and let's get freezin' for a reason!!!
The RAD Polar Plunge was established 7 years (2016 ago to help fund the mission of a brand new registered charity, RAD Recreation Adapted Society. RAD Society aims at influencing communities to invest in inclusion, aspiring to create a world where individuals living with short-term or permanent mobility issues have the opportunity and means to live independent, active (outdoor) lifestyles with friends and family regardless of financial circumstance. By providing an inventory of adaptive outdoor sport and recreation equipment to those independent living humans who wish to play their way with their friends and family RAD is eliminating one of the largest barriers to mobility challenged individuals access to the outdoors, cost.
The price tag on adaptive equipment can reach anywhere from 10x to 100x a piece of regular able-bodied gear. By working as a community, raising awareness and funds to increase the availability of adaptive outdoor devices, we will get everybody outside playing together!
