YOU’RE INVITED: Club NF Picnics in Forest Park
March 11, 2016
Join us for the Club NF Family Picnic directly after the Go! St. Louis Read, Right & Run marathon in Forest Park on Saturday, April 9, from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.! With the help of St. Louis Children’s Hospital physical and occupational therapists, children will participate in a variety of fun outdoor activities, including potato sack races, hula hooping and tug-of-war. These activities promote further development of gross motor (large muscle groups of the body), fine motor (small muscle groups of the body) and social skills in your child.
At the conclusion of the activities portion of the event, we will enjoy a picnic lunch, which will be provided to all family members in attendance. For more information about Club NF events or to register for this upcoming event, please contact Kirsten Brouillet at email@example.com.
Club NF is the Washington University NF Center’s free, play-based therapy program for school-aged children (K – 8th grade) with NF1 and their families. St. Louis Children’s Hospital therapists work directly with the children in small groups to accomplish a variety of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy goals in a real life, social setting. By strengthening underdeveloped skills alongside siblings and peers, these children are set up for future success in the home, classroom and community. The events are held six Saturday mornings a year at various locations and businesses in the St. Louis area, offering a variety of activities throughout the calendar year to meet the needs of all of our families. This event is made possible by generous funding from the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation,
