adaptapalooza

The annual Adaptapalooza event will be celebrating its sixth year and Therapeutic Recreation Month from 5-6:30 p.m. Feb. 25 in the Student Fitness Center.

The free event will be open to the ISU community with no registration required. 

Attendees can come in as schedules allow as long as an Illinois State University identification card is present in order to access the Student Fitness Center. 

Attendees will get to encounter how recreation can be acclimated for those with disabilities. Adaptapalooza will offer a variety of activities, such as wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, goalball and adaptive rock climbing. 

This event was originally constructed by ISU therapeutic recreation students who plan on working to provide people the resources to experience the outcomes of activities, sports and recreation without limits. 

For Therapeutic Recreation Month, Adaptapalooza is one event that helps the ISU community learn more about therapeutic recreation. 

Those interested in learning more about therapeutic recreation or the month-long celebration can reach out to therapeutic recreation students or College of Applied Science and Technology instructor Sherri Hildebrand.
