When & Where
Dreams For Kids DC
Dreams For Kids DC provides free life-changing activities to empower children with physical and mental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential. Dreams For Kids DC (DFKDC) provides adaptive sports clinics for children with disabilities between the ages of 4-24. Many of these children are bullied in schools and left out of activities with their able-bodied peers. DFKDC clinics empower this often isolated group to come off the sidelines and participate in activities such as waterskiing, dance, football and ice hockey, sometimes for the very first time. The self-confidence gained through these programs carries over from the field and rink to the home and classrom, allowing each participant to realize that theie disability will not prevent them from fulfilling their dreams.
