Kid Volunteers will play alongside wheelchair-bound children, from games like Sharks + Minnows, Blob Tag, wheelchair basketball as well as participate in a variety of drills to help these children build strength + fitness.
This is a great opportunity for awareness + empathy-building as well as to experience playing with other kids in a way that may be different than their average play day.
This give-back project is suitable for kids ages 7-13, who are able to play independently + can stay involved throughout the two-hour session.
Kid Volunteers will receive basic instruction on how to push wheelchairs prior to the start of the play.
A takeaway snack will be provided for the Kid Volunteers at the completion of the project.
