CoxHealth Foundation receives Quality of Life grant

The CoxHealth Foundation is the recipient of a $5,718 Quality of Life grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

This accessibility grant has made possible a chair lift to provide pool access to disabled and special needs swimmers at Cox Fitness Center at The Meyer Center.

Since 1999, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation has provided 1,262 Quality of Life grants for a grand total of $10,118,246 to organizations nationwide that help improve opportunities, access and day-to-day quality of life for individuals living with disabilities, primarily paralysis, and their families. This program recognizes the unique and numerous needs of these individuals and the importance of providing services and programs that enable them to participate in all areas of life.

Quality of Life grants, conceived by the late Dana Reeve, are given to programs or projects that improve the daily lives of people living with paralysis, particularly spinal cord injuries. Funding is awarded twice yearly to programs in three categories - the ABCs of Quality of Life: actively achieving, bridging barriers, and caring and coping.

The CoxHealth Foundation was established in 1998 to support the increasing number of healthcare-related service, technology and educational needs across the Ozarks. For more information about the CoxHealth Foundation, call 269-7150.
