One in five Americans is living with a disability! In the Philadelphia region alone, several hundred thousand individuals have a physical disability, developmental disability, or sensory (hearing or sight) impairment. In addition to physical challenges, many persons with disabilities also have secondary complications such as social isolation, low self-esteem, and depression. Recreation is an important element of the physical and mental well-being of all of us, but persons with disabilities do not have the same access to recreation as do their able-bodied counterparts.
The Global Abilities Foundation (GAF) is hosting a Recreation Festival on Saturday, September 28th, 2013. This event will showcase recreational activities for all ages and abilities. The Rec Fest mission is to 1) increase participation in recreation by persons of all abilities, 2) educate the public about disability awareness, 3) increase collaborations between separate organizations that provide disability resources, and 4) raise funds to help our partner organizations continue their programs on an ongoing basis. The event is free to all participants.
