Spin Your Wheels RHWPA
EVENT DATE: Apr 09, 2016
We organized this fundraiser because disabilities affect all of us. Jennifer's 13 year old son, Luke, has cerebral palsy and autism. Katherine teaches special education in the Fox Chapel School District and works with children living with many different disabilties. Andrea has close friends who have children affected by disabilities and sees this as a wonderful opportunity to donate the use of her gym for this event.
Luke has been participating in the program at RHWPA for many years and absolutely loves it! It is believed that the rhythmical gait of a horse acts to move the rider's pelvis in the same rotation and side to side movement that occurs when walking. THIS MEANS CHILDREN WHO ARE NOT INDEPENDENTLY MOBILE ARE ABLE TO SEE WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO WALK!! It's amazing! The horse's adjustable gait promotes riders to constantly adjust to encourage pelic motion while improving strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, posture and mobility.
