Belmont University Physical Therapy students planned and participated recently in two Sports Festivals for children with disabilities. Students worked with “Empower Me Day Camp” to put on an afternoon of games and sporting activities for school-age children. Empower Me Day Camp provides summer day camp for children with disabilities, as well as social and recreational activities throughout the school year. A second group of physical therapy students developed and led a morning of fun-filled gross motor activities for children at “High Hopes.” High Hopes is a non-profit therapy and education center that serves both typically developing children and children with special needs. Equipment for these Service Learning projects was provided in part by a grant from the Belmont University Service Learning Task Force.
