If you’re an adaptive athlete who’s interested in getting involved with sports and exercise but aren’t sure where to start, Burke can help. We have an active adaptive sports program that encourages people of all abilities to take part in physical activity. Burke’s therapeutic recreation department offers a number of these types of activities throughout the year, including adaptive climbing.
Adaptive climbing is a rapidly growing sport that gives individuals with disabilities a chance to use their bodies in a whole new way. Climbing offers a great opportunity for strength, cardiovascular and endurance training as well as socializing, connecting with others and achieving individual success.
Here’s the info on an upcoming clinic:
