BENEFITING: ADAMS ADVENTURE

EVENT: NU HARTFORD MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON 2014

EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014

THE STORY:

We dream of building a playground where children of all abilities can play freely. A place where there are no limitations and where there is something for everyone. Adam’s Adventure will be designed to accommodate not only Mobility Impairments, but also Auditory Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Cognitive Impairments, Visual Disabilities and more. Whether they wish to swing, to climb, to play music, or just need a quiet place to rest, the children will find it there. We dream of a place that will be…A Playground for EVERYONE! 

The idea for this playground was inspired by Adam Mlodzinski. At age 7 Adam was a healthy active little boy, a rising soccer star who could not be distracted by television or video games. When he wasn’t playing soccer he could be found outside playing on the swings or exploring the woods with his sisters.

On November 2, 2009 Adam was stricken suddenly with Bacterial Meningitis triggered by an ear infection that caused his ear drum to burst. He was flown by Life Star to Hartford Children’s Hospital where he remained in a coma for several months. He then faced several months of physical therapy to learn how to walk, talk and eat all over again. While Adam survived the ordeal, the disease left him completely blind with cognitive impairments and a seizure disorder. Despite his challenges, Adam is a fighter and he continues to beat the odds every single day!

The Autism Spectrum

While our playground will have all the elements needed for all children with special needs, we will have a special emphasis on equipment that will be beneficial to children who are on the autism spectrum.  Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.  It now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys.  More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined. Our goal is to provide a place where they can play in their own way, where their parents can relax and enjoy them.
