Running has long been considered an excellent means of achieving cardiovascular fitness, increase bone mineral density, weight loss and more. It's also a fun recreational and competitive sport that requires little to no equipment, and can be done with friends and family. Yet for individuals with cerebral palsy, especially those who use wheelchairs for mobility, running isn't usually the first thing people think of when they are considering ways to increase health, fitness and participation. Yet, with the help of a Frame Runner, a 3-wheeled "bike" like device, almost everybody can run!
Our friends at the Cerebral Palsy International Sport and Recreation Association (CPISRA) have created a large virtual library of tools to help you learn to create, coach, and compete in frame running events with individuals of all abilities! Check them out here.
