On April 5, 2014, the Washington University NF Center in collaboration with the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation hosted their April 2014 Club NF Event! The program focused on building strength, motor planning, coordination and endurance through rock climbing.
Club NF met at Climb So iLL in downtown St. Louis, MO. Children had the opportunity to work directly with professional rock climbers and to try out rock climbing walls of varying difficulty levels. While the children climbed, parents had the chance to speak with Thomas E. Kennedy, III of the Law Offices of Thomas E. Kennedy the III, L.C. about educational advocacy for children with special needs.
Parents, children and Washington University NF Center staff were likewise impressed with the dedication of the owners of Climb So iLL, who made sure every child who wanted to make it to the top of the wall did so, as well as Mr. Kennedy who shared a wealth of knowledge on how to navigate the legalities of the public school system. We would like to extend an extra special thank you to all who made this event extremely successful.
