About Sydney: Hello, my name is Sydney, and I am a recent graduate from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in Health Education, concentration in Physical Activity and Fitness Management, and a minor in Adapted Physical Activity. While I was at college, I was very actively involved in Special Olympics, Fitness Buddy Programs, International Club, Club Goalball Team, and a variety of adaptive sports programs. When I am not volunteering, you can find me cooking, crafting, and exploring the great outdoors. I have been practicing Tai Chi for over two years and find the exercises helpful to relax/cope with stress. I slowly started teaching friends and family the different poses. I teach the poses separately and not in a full sequence so it is more relaxing and can be easily adjusted to fit all needs.
About Dreams For Kids DC: Dreams For Kids DC provides life-changing activities that empower children with physical and developmental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential. DFKDC events are adaptive sports clinics held once or twice a month for children with disabilities aged 4 – 24. Through our events, those with physical and developmental disabilities are able to come off the sidelines and unite with their peers. A lot of these children have been bullied in schools, and are left out of activities with able-bodied children. The empowerment and self confidence gained through the clinic will carry over from the field to the home, classroom, and the community, allowing them to realize that their disability will not prevent them from fulfilling their dreams. Each child is partnered with a volunteer to learn the essence of teamwork, have a mentor, and also bond over a sense of camaraderie. Learn more at dreamsforkidsdc.org
Dreams For Kids DC programs are 100% free and give children with disabilities to sports and other activities, helping them realize their full potential to succeed in all walks of life.
