Purdue-based Pete's Pals to offer program for youth with disabilities
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Pete's Pals will host a five-week physical activity and aquatics program beginning March 22.
Pete's Pals is a Purdue University-based program that focuses on physical activity and aquatics for youth with disabilities. Those ages 3-18 can work individually with a university student clinician to improve physical fitness, swimming and water safety. Each child's program is designed to fit his or her needs.
The program, which is $30 per child, is now accepting applications. All sessions meet 6-8 p.m. each Thursday from March 22 to April 19 at Faith Community Center in Lafayette.
Program organizers also are looking for Purdue student-clinicians who are interested in volunteering. Students will be paired, one-on-one, with a special needs student as they work throughout the five-week program.
Applications are available for both youth and those interested in volunteering at http://www.purdue.edu/hhs/hk/petespals/index.html. For more information or to register, contact K. Andrew Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pete's Pals is sponsored by the Department of Health and Kinesiology and coordinated with Faith Community Center.
