UNITED STATES QUAD RUGBY ASSOCIATION ANNOUCES QUALITY OF LIFE GRANT FROM THE CHRISTOPHER AND DANA REEVE FOUNDATION
 
The United States Quad Rugby Association (USQRA) is proud to be selected as a recipient of a 2nd Cycle 2015 Quality of Life grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. The USQRA was awarded $5,000 to support scholarships for Team Representatives to attend the 2016 Annual General Meeting and USQRA National Championships which will take place April 21st-24th, 2016 in Houston, Texas.
 
Team Representatives will be invited to apply for funding to offset the cost of travel and lodging associated with participation in the Annual General Meeting and the USQRA National Championships. For many teams, this may be the first time they will be able to afford sending a Team Representative to participate in the Annual General Meeting and represent their team. Participation in the Annual General Meeting is critical to ensure the continued growth and development of the sport of wheelchair rugby in the United States.
 
The United States Quad Rugby Association is a 501(c)3 nonprofit which provides oversight, development and administration to wheelchair rugby teams across the United States. Since 1988 the USQRA has been promoting and supporting wheelchair rugby to provide competitive athletic opportunities to eligible people with disabilities and also to empower people to reach their full potential in all areas of life. Currently the USQRA has over 40 teams with more than 500 athletes across the country. For more information: www.usqra.org
