I Can Do It (ICDI)
ICDI addresses the needs of more than 56 million Americans living with a disability1. According to the CDC, about 50% of adults (aged 18-64 years) with a disability “get no aerobic physical activity” compared to only 25% of adults without a disability2,3. Adults (aged 18-64) with a disability who “get no aerobic physical activity” were 50% more likely to have chronic diseases such as cancer, type 2 diabetes, stroke, or heart disease than their active peers2,3.
Benefits of regular physical activity and healthy eating include4:
- Improved mood and well-being
- Reduced risk of heart disease or stroke
- Reduced risk of hypertension and type 2 diabetes
- Growth and development of strong bones, muscles, and joints
