Description

The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center would like to extend an invitation for you to participate in an awesome community outreach opportunity!

PMR, in collaboration with Penn State Health Rehabilitation Hospital, will be hosting the second annual Penn State Rec Fest on April 7, 2018 on the Penn State Harrisburg campus in Middletown. Some demonstrations include; wheelchair rugby, basketball and baseball, scuba diving, kayaking, tai chi, service dogs, sled hockey, track chair, adaptive hunting equipment, adaptive snow/water ski equipment, gardening and more.

The goals of Penn State Rec Fest are multifaceted:

  • Bring opportunities for participation in adaptive sports, recreation and exercise to improve overall health and quality of life
  • Allow for hands on participation of adaptive equipment
  • Have exhibitors available to showcase programs and resources in the community
  • Enhance the local college programs through volunteer participation at this event
  • Create a platform for research and an opportunity to gather data to assess outcome goals

Penn State Rec Fest is FREE for people of all ages, with or without a disability.
