ADAPTIVE SPORTS PLAY FOR ALL

This event is an extension of the museum’s Play For All initiative, but for the first time will feature free admission with its Target Free Family Night. The human body is wired to learn through movement. From infancy through adolescence, when children crawl, walk, run, climb, twist, and bend, they are building the structures in their brains where later more complex learning will take place. Visitors will discover the many possibilities for athletes with disabilities as all visitors can play roller sled hockey, goalball, hand-cycling, wheelchair racing, and boccia and visit a See & Touch Prosthetics display. There will also be an athlete panel comprised of youth athletes with disabilities sharing their stories.

The museum will also provide transportation for a limited number of groups to attend as well.
