|Leisure has no barriers. The Innovative Recreation Cooperative (IRC) of Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center introduces individuals with a disability to new and creative ways to participate in leisure activities. Individuals with brain and spinal injury, stroke, and orthopedic injuries including amputees as well as neurological impairments participate in IRC programs. |
The IRC hosts clinics in water skiing, snow skiing, paddling, cycling, climbing, marksmanship, and golf on a regular basis. Specialty clinics are hosted depending on interest and have included road racing, tennis, sled hockey, hunting, fishing, self-defense, and camping. Your donation to IRC helps provide programs for several of the handcyclists that you will see on race day at the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon.
