When: Sunday, September 24th, 2017 from 11-2pm
Where: Issaquah High School Track and Field (700 2nd Ave SE, Issaquah, WA)
What: A day for children and young adults with physical or developmental disabilities to participate in competitive and non-competitive fitness events including adapted equipment, races, and group classes.
The Experience Fitness Zone will have representatives from many different local recreational & fitness programs & organizations promoting opportunities for children with disabilities.
All event activities have been developed by licensed pediatric physical therapists, and are designed to blend elements of competition with fun, serving as motivation to train during the weeks leading up to race day! All races will include modifications to try and accommodate all ability levels and assistive devices.
Why: Because we believe fitness plays a critical role in helping people with disabilities to optimize their physical and emotional health. Improving fitness can directly lead to increased participation in family, school, community, and peer-oriented activities.
Our goals: 1. To provide children and young adults with disabilities an opportunity to engage in both competitive and non-competitive fitness-related activities. 2. To provide families with information and opportunities to learn about, access, and interact with local organizations that provide fitness and recreation options to young people with disabilities.
Who: Children and young adults with motor delays, and their families & friends. All ability levels are welcome including the use of adapted bikes and manual or power wheelchairs.
