Reminder - Support Out & About's $20 for 20 Years Campaign!

Today I’d like to offer one more reminder about Imagine!’s Out & About department’s “$20 for 20 Years” crowdfunding campaign, designed to help provide more adaptive equipment and more opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to participate in structured programs designed to support their needs.

Imagine!’s Out & About department offers community-based therapeutic recreation services for children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The program provides opportunities for people to participate in activities designed to improve social skills, community involvement, and skills that enhance overall quality of life.

Why We Need Your Help

Out & About’s intention is to continue to enrich the quality of service by providing adaptive equipment and opportunities to participate in structured programs designed to support people’s needs. These items will make a huge difference:
  • Purchasing adaptive equipment so participants can swim, create art, play sports, and communicate their needs 
  • Ticket/admission fees for adaptive programs and events 
  • Partnerships with local organizations that provide therapeutic programs such as the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD), Adaptive Adventures, and Medicine Horse Adaptive Riding Program 
Some specific examples of what your donation will fund

  • An afternoon of rock climbing with NSCD for one child 
  • An afternoon of paddling with NSCD for one adult 
  • one life jacket for swimming activities 
  • one adaptive paint brush 
  • A day at Water World for five adults 
  • An adaptive horseback riding session for ten participants 
  • one adult wheelchair 
  • A day of adaptive skiing for one participant 
  • A day of snowshoeing for ten participants 
  • five adaptive kayak stabilizers 
  • one adaptive tricycle 
  • five adaptive communication devices 
  • A day of snow tubing for up to 50 people 
All donations will go directly to the Out & About’s children and adult programs. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.
