“We greatly appreciate the support that the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation has given us over the years,” said Aaron Moffett, professor of kinesiology at CSUSB and director of the festival. “Through their support, we have been able to purchase adapted equipment, which can be incredibly expensive, increase the number of participants to 700 athletes, and ensure that our program stays free for all participants.”
