In the pediatric-special-care program from the Milwaukee Center for Independence (MCFI), children with special health-care needs and disabilities receive a chance to interact with other children in a safe, stimulating environment. MCFI serves children with significant disabilities and health-care needs at the Wells Street Academy, where kids participate in learning, social, and developmental programs and benefit from a variety of therapies.
MCFI aims to supplement the music and animal-assisted therapy programs already available at Wells Street Academy with an aquatic-therapy program. Many of the children have muscle discomfort, and swimming can help loosen their muscles and improve respiratory capacity, as well as provide them with a fun experience. However, the majority of the kids also have limited control over their bodily movements, so flotation devices with head supports will help keep them comfortable and safe in the water.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help MCFI provide aquatic therapy for children with special needs. If G-Team members raise $300, then MCFI can purchase 10 flotation devices with head supports for children attending the Wells Street Academy. Each additional $30 raised will be used to purchase another flotation device.
