THE STORY:

This year I am proud to be running the BAA Distance Medley (5K in April, 10K in June, half marathon in October) in support of The Play Brigade. Would you consider a donation to help us build a world in which everyone, no matter what his or her strengths and weaknesses (or, as I like to call them, 'different'-abilities) has the opportunity to participate in full?  Thank you for your support!

-----

From The Play Bigade:

More fun for everyone. (Really, everyone.)

After Dawn and Justin Oates's third child was paralyzed in a catastrophic birth injury, they discovered the difficulty of planning fun family activities that included all three of their children. What started with asking for an accessible swing at a local playground evolved into a vision of a world for all individuals where there are no barriers to play, recreation, or sports, and where inclusion is the cornerstone of community. From there, The Play Brigade was born.

Advocate. Influence. Empower.

Millions of children and adults living with disabilities are missing opportunities to interact with their peers and their community in fun and meaningful ways because they are overlooked in the planning process. The Play Brigade believes that inclusion, the idea that everyone participates and everyone belongs, is the cornerstone of community. As such, the work we do is inclusive, rather than “specialized,” and we raise the bar beyond ADA compliant. We create awareness of inclusion as a social problem, illustrating how individuals and entire communities benefit when every person has the opportunity to participate and belong.

How we move the needle for social change:

We form allies who are committed to making inclusion a priority and who have the desire, ability and leadership position to effect change within their organization or municipality.

We consult with organizations on what changes they can make that will have great impact toward being more inclusive.

We create universal opportunities for fun that demonstrate what true community inclusion looks like and showcase its benefits to communities and society as a whole.
