Paralympic Sport Club of Maine logo Research shows that daily physical activity for people with disabilities results in reduced stress, depression and secondary medical conditions and increases self-esteem, education success, employment rates and quality of life.

U.S. Paralympics is partnering with community organizations across the country, such as the VAST program at Pineland Farms, to create a network of Paralympic Sports Clubs. Paralympic Sports Clubs are community-based programs developed to involve people with physical and visual disabilities in sports and physical activity, regardless of skill level. With 21 million physically disabled Americans, including thousands of military personnel who’ve sustained serious injuries while on active duty, this is an important community need.

The VAST Program is funded in part by a recent grant from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
