New Way to Find Accessible Inclusive Recreation Announced


Tallahassee, FL, March 2012 - The Florida Disabled Outdoors Association
(FDOA) is excited to announce a free Recreation Resource Referral Network
available to everyone. The Resource Referral Network allows people to search
for accessible inclusive programs and services, products, destinations, and
events throughout the state of Florida. Searches can be made depending on
the needs of each person.  Examples include searching by county for any type
of recreation source or a search for information just on horseback riding.
The Recreation Resource Referral Network is online at www.fdoa.org/rrd .

This tool can be used to learn about recreation that will help people to be
healthier, meet other people, network, have fun and simply have a better
quality of life. Laurie LoRe-Gussak, Executive Director of the Florida
Disabled Outdoors Association states, "Many times, people do not realize
that there are recreation options in their own neighborhood that are
designed with people with disabilities in mind.  The health and wellness
benefits gained from active leisure are numerous.  It is important that
people with disabilities can recreate with their families and friends and
live healthy lifestyles."

It is important to note that the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association's
listing of recreation services does not constitute an endorsement of any
program, service, product, event or destination. This database is for
information and referral purposes only. By using this resource, the user
agrees not to hold the FDOA liable for problems that may occur.
