The Magee Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation has been named as a recipient of a $20,000 Inglis Foundation Award for Excellence and the money will be used by Magee’s Wheelchair Sports Program.

Suzanne Smalley, Magee’s Grant Writer and Special Events Coordinator, submitted the application package which highlighted wheelchair sports in December. In Mach—after the application was picked as a finalist—members of the Inglis Foundation came out to a wheelchair rugby practice to meet with Wheelchair Sports Coordinator AJ Nanayakkara and see the team in action.

No surprise, they were very impressed with what they saw.

The Award for Excellence will be presented to Magee’s Wheelchair Sports Program during a ceremony at Inglis House May 4, where AJ and the rugby team will once again demonstrate their sport…and their passion for it.

Magee is one of five winners for this year’s award.

Services include an adult day program, affordable and wheelchair accessible housing, care management, community employment, specialty nursing care.
