ucation that is flexible enough to fit into their lives they are living today,” says Levy. “I think we will see more participants with dual working families. If we can be supportive of these families, then we are serving those people then that is one of our missions.” Getting to Hebrew school on Sundays has not been an issue as much as it has been on Wednesdays for dual working families, says Levy. “How do we best serve their needs?” he questions. “Having an online component was the best way to do this.” Lots of colleges are using the virtual classroom and it is growing in secondary education, why not religious learning? “We’re part of an early group of congregations that would dip their feet,” says Levy, who says its exciting to “be on the cutting edge. This is a very new thing to do.” A cohort of three to four students and a teacher will decide on a day and time for their virtual lesson. The teacher will lead a Hebrew lesson using online technology such as PowerPoint, webinars and Facetime. Students can use desktop computers, laptops, Chromebooks or tablets, adds Levy. Their learning will mirror what the students are learning in the classroom. “Whether in person on Wednesday afternoon or virtual continued on page 4

By Cheryl Conway etting to Hebrew School during the week can be difficult sometimes for parents who work full time or for students who are active with sports and after school activities. With a new virtual classroom option being offered at Temple Shalom in Succasunna, students can now have more flexibility and tune in to their weekday lessons with less conflict. The reform synagogue is the first in the local area to offer such a convenient program. The Virtual Classroom Option is a platform through ShalomLearning which will allow Hebrew school students in grades three through seven to tune into their Wednesday lesson during a convenient day or time. Classes will still meet Sunday mornings and Wednesday afternoons 5 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. at the synagogue. Students who cannot meet on Wednesdays can opt to sign up for the distance learning option. “Our children are increasingly being pulled in many different directions in things they are doing,” says Rabbi David Levy, religious leader at Temple Shalom. “I want religious education something that fits into their lives, rather than a burden to fit into their lives. I want it to be joyful, enriching.” With more modern means, virtual learning is “something we should try,” says Levy. “Clearly there are people wanting a solid Jewish education,” but they need flexibility or something that fits into their schedules. The “great benefit” with the virtual learning option is “these parents are able to give [children] a solid Jewish ed-

High School Dance Program Moving Along Strong In Randolph
By Jane Primerano room originally designed for auto shop now vibrates with the sound of hip hop music. Randolph High School is one of the few schools in the state offering a dance program and has had one longer than most, nine years. Michelle Adriano started with the program, coming north from Somerset County where she taught in middle school. This year she has 120 students, four of them boys, in introductory, intermediate and advanced dance classes. She teaches technique and lets the dancers pick the styles they like. They do a lot of hip hop and
now has a dance floor, mirrored wall and curtained dressing areas. Adriano said she has students who started dance at age three as well as some who never took dance until they reached high school. Some intro
students progress to the advanced class in a year, she said. More commonly, they spend two years in intro and two in intermediate. Some who have danced since childhood spend all four years in advanced. This results in classes with
a mixture of interests and abilities. “I make sure all the kids feel proud at the end of the year,” she said. They get to show off their talents at the end of the year in a dance showcontinued on next page

case. The showcase draws an audience that fills the auditorium for two performances. “We have 1,000 tickets and sell them all,” Adriano said. “We get great support
from the community.” The first chance to showcase their talent comes in October with the pep rally that ends Spirit Week. The dancers perform a hip hop number on the football field.
The most experienced dancers serve as assistant teachers, working with their less experienced peers. Students also get an opportunity to choreograph dances. “We empower them to

be creative here,” Adriano said. She explained she incorporates things that the students care about or are happening in their lives, such as body image issues, domestic violence and violence in general. “We explore grief,” she noted, especially after a car accident claimed the lives of several Randolph students. They also created a dance around Hurricane Sandy. Juliana Hirniak, a senior, is one of the assistant teachers. She dances with a semi-professional Ukrainian dance troop in New York City. “I love to teach,” she said. “I didn’t think I would, but I do and I love to express myself and see my ideas come to life in
choreography.” Although her eventual goal is to be a speech pathologist, Hirniak wants to continue studying dance, probably at Rutgers or The College of New Jersey. Autumn Gioa, a junior, is in her second year of the dance program but studied hip hop and lyrical at a private dance school. She is also on the high school gymnastics team and a club team. Samantha DiPaoli, knowns as “Small Sam” because another Samantha is taller, has been dancing since age two. A self-proclaimed “science nerd,” the senior does plan on continuing to dance in college.
Adriano herself started dancing at an early age. She is studying for her master’s degree in counseling at Montclair State University and is also getting her supervisor’s certificate. She said she may eventually want to be a supervisor of fine and performing arts. She used to choreograph the spring musical, but after having a child gave that up. A number of her dance students participate in theater. The arts programs all work together, she noted, including the graphic arts students creating posters and tickets for performances.

for weekday, they’re getting the same curriculum, the same learning.” Students who agree to participate will work with approximately three or four other students and a teacher on a mutually agreeable day and time in the “comfort of their own living room in a time that fits into their needs instead of a fixed schedule,” says Levy. They will log onto the website and be able to interact with their teacher, the material and the other students in real-time. Out of the 140 students registered for Hebrew school this year at Temple Shalom, 15 have already signed up for the virtual setting. Participants will pay a small surcharge for the virtual classroom option to cover the technology costs to run webinars, PowerPoint screens and curriculum, says Levy. If cost is an issue, Levy says “nobody should be denied a place at the table because of finances.” Alissa Okrent of Flanders, or Mrs. O, will be the assigned teacher for the virtual learning program. Teaching Judaic and Hebrew at Temple Shalom since 1995, Okrent did attend a training class through ShalomLearning to meet the creators, learn the technical system and how to access the online curriculum. “I am very excited about this program,” says Okrent. “ShalomLearning is a wonderful program that is comprehensive and well planned. I believe this opens an opportunity both for families to meet a variety of needs in the busy world in which we live. As a teacher, it provides me with a more personal educational relationship with my students. For me, "being" Jewish, is a feeling, as much as a lifestyle.”
Okrent plans to offer three online classes broken up by grade level; third graders; fourth and fifth; and sixth and seventh. Each session will meet for about 50 minutes. “My intention is for each student to gain confidence, have fun while learning,” she says. Since it is her first year with this program, she plans to teach the Hebrew component on Wednesdays, concentrating on the Hebrew letters, reading the language and understanding and meaning of prayers; leaving the lessons on Judaic with its culture, religion and Israel news on Sundays. “I am following the core curriculum of the other teachers at Temple Shalom - so communicating with them is the main guidance I will need for each of the distance classes,” she says. Her strategy will concentrate on “creativity, attentiveness, an open mind and joy,” she says. “I am honored to be teaching this format,” she adds. “I love all elements of Jewish education, as I live my life by core Jewish values, this is an extension of meeting the needs of a changing world.” Levy adds, “In every aspect in what we do as a congregation, we try to focus on serving the needs of our congregation and serve what God wants us to do in the world. It’s a two way street. We look to serve our congregants and education of our children is one of our highest priorities.” Hebrew school is in session at Temple Shalom but virtual classes will begin after the High Holidays and continue through May. For more information about this new program, contact the Temple Shalom Religious School at 973-584-5666.

Drivers In Randolph Slow Down To Recognize Importance Of Traffic Safety
By Cheryl Conway ctober is Traffic Awareness Month and in Randolph motorists may notice some extra enforcement on the streets. Increased patrol vehicles in both marked and unmarked vehicles, traffic calming measures with marked decoy vehicles and traffic calming signs are to be expected throughout the month, according to Detective Lieutenant Christopher Giuliani of the Randolph Police Department. In conjunction with Randolph Traffic Safety Awareness Month, the Randolph Township Police Department helped to promote the Annual Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day on Mon., Oct. 10, when motorists throughout the nation were asked to join a day-long effort to raise awareness on safe driving behaviors and keep the state’s roadways fatality free for one day, according to a RTPD press release. The RPD, along with the Randolph Twp. Traffic Advisory Committee, decided to extend that day to a month long initiative to support safe driving behaviors. Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day is a national initiative designed to unite the country to zero fatalities on one day by en-
couraging motorists to obey all traffic laws such as wearing seatbelts, sticking to the posted speed, avoiding distraction while driving and driving safely, the press release states. “Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day not only raises awareness about the individual responsibility we have for our driving behaviors, but also engages drivers in making positive changes behind the wheel every day of the year,” notes Giuliani in the press release. “Our chief likes to enforce it all month,” says Giuliani. “We do a whole month campaign out there,” and have been doing so for the past three years. The ultimate goal is more of an “educational component,” he adds. The decoy vehicles will serve to slow people down, says Giuliani. The speed control devices will inform drivers how fast they are driving. Extra speed limit signs may be placed in the middle of roads or on cross walks. “We try to get them out as much as possible,” says Giuliani. “Since October is traffic awareness month, we’ll get more out.” More summons or warnings may be issued during the month of October with the increased patrols and enforcement, he says.
“We enforce everyday but this month we crack down even more,” he says. “It’s before the holidays; it’s a good time to get the message out to drive safely. That’s what the goal is, to bring more awareness. If you’re not driving properly, it’s dangerous.” Giuliani explains, “If enforcement is gonna be up, people tend to drive a little better and become more aware. It’s good for the residents who drive through Randolph regularly. “Officers are not out there to give more tickets,” explains Giuliani. They are out there to raise more awareness. “It’s not a money maker for the town.” With motor vehicle laws, “if you stop someone, it’s an educational component,” he reiterates. “That doesn’t change this month. We are going to be more visible and more focused, to increase the enforcement, to increase the presence” so that “will resonate in peoples’ minds that they drive a little better.” Giuliani says “if they see the signs we hope they will change their measures of driving.” Last year in NJ there were 562 individuals who lost their lives in motor vehicle related crashes, up from 556 the year prior, according to the RTPD press release.

Rams Field Hockey In Midst Of Winning Season
By Josh Lashley ccording the national high school rankings in early October on the respected and very detailed web site maxfieldhockey.com, four of the top 25 programs in the country compete in New Jersey. That a great and well-deserved honor. It’s also goes to show just how good the Randolph High School team is, knowing that the Garden State is so highly regarded in field hockey and yet the Rams are certainly in the midst of a winning, successful season. There is enough credit to be shared in respect to just how well Randolph is playing and that most definitely includes the captains-TT Naslonski, Kristen Sisco and Jillian Tucker, all of whom are seniors. “These three seniors were selected based off their leadership skills, determination and mentoring skills,” Randolph Head Coach Gina Annunziata said. “They each individually bring something different to the table such as field hockey skills, being vocal and organized and their athleticism.
Together they pull out the best in each other to lead our team to success. “I would have to agree with my coaching staff and players that these three have the upmost respect as students and as athletes,” she says. “They are very approachable to every level and know when they have to be stern. They are a great group of girls who will continue to grow as leaders to shape our season.” The team leaders for the Rams have gone to great lengths to not only improve themselves in field hockey, but to encourage their teammates to do so as well. “We are a young team who lost four incredible seniors last year,’’ Annunziata said. “We have to work on the basics to get ourselves to the top which include communication, double teaming and better passing options. We continue to grow and I think that is important when it comes to our success. “(They) help their teammates improve on their time management,” she adds. “There is no way you can get all of your work done if you do not use your time

he Roxbury Boy Scout Music Ensemble is seeking new members for the upcoming season. The band is composed of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and some alumni members from around Roxbury, Randolph, and surrounding towns. For those who play an instrument and are interested in having some fun this holi-
day season, come out and join in! Performances are during the winter holiday season every year and then in the springtime performances in the Memorial Day parade. Practices will begin the second week of October and will be held twice a week. If interested, contact Matt Iannicelli at Miannicelli3@gmail.com.
wisely. Being a student-athlete takes a lot of commitment and I think all of my players use their time to get their work done so when it is field hockey time they have no worries. Field hockey like any other sport should be a time for the students to escape their stress and enjoy the game. Personally, game days were my favorite days to go to school. You got to represent your team wearing your gear/uniform and show everyone you have a game today. I hope all of my players carry that same pride like I did in school.’’ Annunziata mentions that several players, besides the above mentioned captains provide a considerable spark for the Rams this year. “We have had our usually returners step up big like Agustina Lago (junior), Erin Corrigan (junior), Kasey Earle (junior),
Mackenzie Sheehan (junior), Sarah Leneghan (junior) and Mackenzie Vorel (sophomore),” Annunziata says. “Our newcomers are Carly Snarski (sophomore), Lauren Madalian (junior), and Olivia Meyers (sophomore). “Field hockey teams are always an interesting group. They usually have no prior understanding of the sport before they get to the high school so from freshman year they have to create a love for a sport in such a small amount of time. This senior group started out pretty large and now is down to four girls. They each have brought something new and different to the team. We have had some injuries along the way this season but our spirits have never fallen short. I believe in the team we have and I believe we will go very far this year.’’

Charity Group Spreads The Warmth credits toward baby supplies they may need. “We were so grateful to be given a tour of the facility and were able to see where our donations would be displayed for new moms to choose from,” says Carney. “t was so heartwarming to know that we are able to help CareNet make a positive difference in our area.” To volunteer with CareNet, go to http://www.friendsofcarenetwarrenco.com/V olunteer.html. The group then traveled to Elizabeth to make a huge delivery to New York City Relief. This organization provides New York City and Urban New Jersey cities with care for homeless citizens. Their relief busses set up in different cities many nights of the week distributing food, clothing, and personal care items to those in need. The Relief Bus also meets with individuals to help connect them with resources such as job connections, housing options, and rehabilitation options. “We knitted and crocheted hats, scarves, and cowls for the Relief bus to distribute as the cooler weather approaches,” she says. The relief bus is always looking for vol-
unteers to help whenever they are able; find out more at http://www.newyorkcity relief.org. “We can't wait to get started knitting and crocheting our next donations,” concludes Carney. “We would love to add new members to our group. If you have even the most basic knitting or crocheting skills, please consider
joining us at our next meeting. We are also in need of knitting and crocheting supplies, so if you, or anyone you know is looking to donate yarn, needles, or hooks, please contact us.” All information about upcoming charity knit/crochet days and contact information can be found at website: http://emc001.wixsite. com/knitschool.

Recommended by manufacturers and utilities alike, regularly scheduled maintenance on a heating and air conditioning system can reduce breakdowns by as much as 95 percent and lower utility bills by up to 35 percent. Air Group offers a wide choice of service plans for heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical & generator systems. A service technician is available 24 hours a day seven days a week from October-April for heating through its on-call rotation, which is especially important during extreme weather when someone is entrusted to get equipment going right away.

The easiest and most cost-effective way to keep a system running efficiently is to enroll in an Air Group Priority Plus Maintenance Plan. Tune-ups catch small problems before they become major breakdowns. Get other membership benefits, like priority service to jump to the head of the line and be scheduled ahead of others. This applies to both routine and emergency calls. Also receive a 15 percent discount off the bottom line for heating, air conditioning and plumbing services for as long as the service partner relationship remains in effect. And on top of all that, get a peace of mind. The home’s plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems will be assessed to ensure they are in safe operating condition; findings will be reported, concerns will be explained and potential emergencies will be alerted before they become disruptive problems. Check out this helpful checklist to ensuring the furnace runs smoothly and efficiently throughout the entire snowy season. Replace the furnace filter. Check to see if the filter is full of debris since the last time it was replaced. A dirty filter can cause the furnace to work harder than it has to, and decrease airflow, making it to use more energy and
shortening the lifespan of the furnace. Now is also the time to service the humidifier by changing the water filter. Check vents and ductwork. Be sure the supply and return vents are free and clear while also being sure they are not blocked with furniture or clothes. The air must circulate through the rooms to heat them properly. Air leaking from the basement or attic ductwork is air that should be traveling to rooms. Thoroughly check ducts and their connections to make sure they are secure, and seal air leaks properly before turning on the furnace for the winter. Schedule a maintenance call. Having the furnace thoroughly cleaned and inspected by one of the experienced HVAC professionals at Air Group LLC before the start of the winter can make sure that the unit will run efficiently and will fix any potential problems before they grow into bigger concerns. Need the furnace inspected? If the furnace wasn’t inspected yet, don’t delay. Contact the experts at Air Group, certified HVAC experts with more than 50 years of experience, call at 1-800-545-1020 or schedule an appointment online at airgroupllc.com.

In video messages sent to new Fernbrook families, Principal Danielle Soldivieri asked parents to download the Aurasma app and then walk around the school and search for eggs in a virtual scavenger hunt called “Falc-e-mon GO!” Modeled after the popular Pokemon Go! app which has hooked children and adults all over the country, Soldivieri partnered with the PTO to design the adventure to make the open house for new families more fun.
New Students Go On Adventure
New Families received the following: “Can you free them all?! We want your child’s tour to be fun and informative! Our school mascot, the Fernbrook Falcon, needs your help. If you see a Falc-e-mon egg in our school, simply point your Aurasma viewfinder at the egg to free the character inside.” New kindergartener Zachary Wysmierski had a blast. “I saw my teacher in a video in an egg,” he said. “My new teacher loves to play with Playdoh!” Zachary is in Molly Ziegelstein’s class. As part of the fun, a video of her talking about how much she enjoys Playdoh was featured in an egg in the “Falc-e-mon GO! experience.

ew Jersey Blood Services plans to conduct local blood drives which are open to the public. The following drives are scheduled: Sat., Oct. 22, Mountain Lakes Volunteer Fire Department, Mountain Lakes, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sun., Oct. 23, White Meadow Lake Clubhouse, Rockaway, 8:30 a.m.to 2:30 p.m. Mon., Oct. 24, Knights of Columbus 3665, Netcong, 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thur., Oct. 27, Dunkin Donuts Budd Lake, Budd Lake, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Fri., Oct. 28, Morris Minute Men Emergency Medical Services, Morris Plains, 2:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. New Jersey Blood Services, a division of New York Blood Center (NYBC) is asking for help to maintain an adequate supply of all blood types, but especially O-negative – the “universal” blood which can be transfused into anyone in an emergency. In addition, hundreds of additional blood drives need to be scheduled to meet

projected hospital demand. Current inventory of several blood types is running below the desired target level. “It’s simple: hospital patient demand for blood often outpaces our best efforts to recruit donors and schedule blood drives,” said NYBC Executive Director of Donor Recruitment Andrea Cefarelli. “There are always reasons but we have to overcome that for the sake of hospital patients who need us.” “This is one of the toughest times of the year,” Cefarelli added. “We’re asking for our dedicated supporters to roll up their sleeves to make sure we’re able to provide our hospital partners with whatever they need to take care of their patients.” Blood products have a short shelf life – from five to 42 days, so constant replenishment is necessary. Each and every day there are patients who depend on the transfusion of red blood cells, platelets and plasma to stay alive. But blood and blood products can’t be manufactured.
They can only come from volunteer blood donors who take an hour to attend a blood drive or visit a donor center.
To donate blood or for information on how to organize a blood drive call 1-800933-2566; visit: www.nybloodcenter.org.

Sarah Borges, Mef & Angela Highlight Vasa Show Nov. 13
arah Borges is one of those rare talents - someone who not only can rip it up on stage, but also has the charisma to relate directly to her audience. She is musically outstanding, has a great sense of humor, uses stories to engage the crowd, and in the end, doesn't leave anything on the table. Borges will bring it on when she comes to the Vasa Park Cultural Center in Mt. Olive for a special show on Sun., Nov. 13 (doors open at 2p.m., first act at 2:30p.m.), with her band, The Broken Singles. Also featured is the eclectic duo, Mef & Angela, and singersongwriter Steve Kirchuk. Mef & Angela
play only a couple of reunion shows a year and this is one of them. Vasa Park is located just off Route 46 in Mt. Olive, at 1 Vasa Drive. When Borges performs, she likens it to “digging deep.” “Digging deep” has never been a problem for the Massachusetts native. “I would say that my sound is straight up rock and roll, but it’s the sum total of what my record collection looks like,” she said. What you hear on her recordings is what you’ll get on stage. “A lot of loud guitars and loud singing. You can certainly dance to it.” Borges’ style is parts Americana, Indie,
Roxbury Hosts Cheerleader Competition
he Roxbury High School Cheer Parents Club is hosting a cheerleading competition for fall football half-time shows on Sun., Oct. 23 at Roxbury High School. High school and recreational teams are invited to come out and compete against their peers to earn the title of “The Best”! This fun, friendly competition will give fall cheerleaders the opportunity to experience the three of
competition without committing the time and expense of a competition cheer team. No additional preparation is needed. Just take the regular half-time show ‘on the road’ to compete against the schools and towns each week of the season! Registration information can be found on Roxbury Cheerleading’s homepage at www.freewebs/roxburycheer. Submissions are due by Thur., Oct. 20.
straight up rock, and blues. Just what was Borges listening to during her formative musical years? “When I started playing in a band, I listened to X and its offshoots, like the Knitters and other bands that its members were in. I also listened to a lot of old country from my dad’s record collection, and a lot of classic rock. I grew up in Boston, which in the 1990s was such a hotbed for indie rock. You could go and see all your favorite bands in the clubs every Saturday night. There’s a lot of musicians and bands that came from here, and were so accessible when I started playing. That helped me out a lot in terms of me thinking it was possible to be in a band.” Though the creative side of her loves to record, Borges says that it’s being on stage night after night that is truly her greatest passion. “That’s my favorite part of music. Every night is different, and determined by the people in the audience. Sometimes, the crowd is so ready to go, and sometimes you might have to work things a little more. I like to do it night after night, because it’s a living and breathing thing – (em dash) and it evolves.”

“I’m not afraid to lay it out there. What’s the worst thing that can happen? Nobody is going to die,” she says with a laugh. Telling her story - and being a musical bad ass in the process. That’s Sarah Borges. And she’s proud of it. Being proud of their music is something that also describes Mef & Angela, a longtime favorite in Northwest Jersey. The duo mixes quiet with loud, fashioning their own flavor to recognizable songs, and adding their own material as well. Kirchuk offers his own style, mixing originals with covers that take on new meaning. In addition to great music, there will be vendors selling crafts and other cool stuff, a full bar, and food for sale. The show is presented by Joe Hirsh Productions and Vasa Park, with sponsorship in part from Cheers Craft Beers and Bites, of Mount Olive (formerly Eastern Asian Bistro). Tickets in advance are just $15. To order tickets, go to www.joehirshproductions. com. For further information email email@example.com.

Inspiration from the Editor...
Motivation Sweetens The Recipe For Weight Loss
t a recent exercise class, a new member walked in at least half way into the start of class. No biggie, I was few minutes late myself. But when I noticed that she was exercising without any shoes on, I thought well now that’s motivation! The instructor stopped class and ran out to her car thinking she had an extra pair in her trunk, as they happen to wear the same size, but realized they were no longer there. When asked where her shoes were, the member responded, ‘I just couldn’t find them.’ Exercise and dieting go hand and hand, most trainers and fitness consultants would agree, when it comes to weight loss. But it is that third element that makes all the difference. Like drinking coffee without cream and sugar, trying to lose weight without that key ingredient, motivation, it just does not mix well. No matter what the goal, success is hard to achieve without that motivation. Some may give up their lunch hour to walk four miles every day. Others may give up something they love like eating dessert or drinking
alcohol. Some figure if they exercise everyday they will lose weight, but that is not always the case. Most individuals, once they reach that magical age of 45, need to push themselves even harder or add on even more exercise to their regular routine. Instead of running four miles, run twice that day and try for six miles. One dad I know spent his free time running his kids around to activities. But he found his motivation when he jumped on that treadmill 11 p.m. at night to still squeeze in that run while others would probably be watching the news or hitting the hay. Back to that woman at my class, as we were doing our squats, she looked at me with an expression of pain. The class was challenging. I looked at her and told her I admire her motivation. This mother was late to class, missing almost half of it, but still showed up without shoes on her feet. Toward the end of class, two other women came in to the building, not to exercise, but to set up for a funeral repass for a friend who just died. As they were arranging the tables and lining up the trays filled with
delicious pastries as the sweet aroma of coffee filled the room, we were toning with our weights, doing sit ups on the mat and stretches at the end. I was grateful and appreciative for that moment that I was able to be part of a group of women sharing in an exercise class bonded by the same goal of taking care of
our most precious gift from God. We have one body and must be disciplined to take care of it no matter what it takes. Wearing athletic shoes does help of course, but if ‘by any means necessary’ is your motto, and that works for you, by all means, that is the way to go to lead you to a path toward better health and fitness.

Abilities Receives Grant From Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation
bilities of Northwest Jersey has received a $7,500 Quality of Life grant from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. The award was one of 79 grants totaling more than $575,704 awarded by the Reeve Foundation to nonprofit organizations nationwide that provide more opportunities, access, and daily quality of life for individuals living with paralysis, their families, and caregivers. Conceived by the late Dana Reeve, the program has awarded more than 2,700 grants totaling more than $20 million since 1999. Abilities will use the grant to purchase Smart Tables, which accommodate four individuals in wheelchairs simultaneously, include those to facilitate communication, learning and prevocational skills. Use of such devices also improves physical dexterity and creates opportunities for group activities and peer interaction, helping to make Abilities’ MSN a stimulating resource for individuals with limited mobility. “It is with deep appreciation that we share this news of the Reeve Foundation’s generous contribution to expand the use of assistive technology in our MSN program,” said Abilities CEO Cynthia B. Wildermuth.
“Their support will change the lives of those we serve with mobility impairments. We are grateful and hope this is the beginning of a rewarding collaboration with the foundation.” Awarded twice yearly, grant requests were evaluated and scored based on a rigorous review process to determine funding for organizations that improve daily life for those living with paralysis, as well as their families and caregivers. In this particular grant cycle, the grantee review board awarded a significant number of grants in medically underserved areas for modification projects, animal service programs and veteran programs. The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Quality of Life Grants Program was created to address the myriad needs of children and adults living with paralysis, as well as provide assistance and education to their families and caregivers. Funded programs serve individuals living with paralysis caused by injuries, diseases or birth conditions, including but not limited to, stroke, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
