In August I attended a picnic put on by Alpha Supported Living for their residents. They held the picnic at Crossroads Community Park (a fabulous place behind Crossroads mall.) The main activity at this annual event is provided by a group called Outdoors for All. Their mission is to enrich the quality of life for adults and children with disabilities through outdoor recreation.
There was a lot of enriching going on. They had a collection of adapted bicycles (mostly trikes) that worked for people with disabilities. Watching people use these bikes was fabulous. I was reminded of the look on my kid’s faces when they first got a bicycle to work without training wheels.
To check out the work of the Outdoors for All people, go to their website www.outdoorsforall.org. I urge you to support them.
Here are some pictures I took at the event.
