P.E. Equipment for Students with Autism

City:  Kansas City, MO
School:  Bell Prairie Elementary School  
Teacher:  Mrs. Mann-Brown

My students need:

My students are in grades K-5 and have autism. They are very active, love to run, swing and climb however they have no adaptive equipment in P.E. I am requesting 4 tricycles to help inspire my students to learn a lifelong activity that will build their gross motor skills, improve their physical fitness and give them a skill to meet new friends.


Our School and Minds are Growing!Help Us Keep Up

City:  Philadelphia, PA
School Mastery Charter School - Smedley 
Teacher Mrs. Johnson

My students need:

Childhood obesity is a growing problem in this country and it is my job to come up with new ways to keep students excited about being active. The equipment I have requested for my students will help replace worn out equipment and enhance my P.E. classes. My students don't have a lot of resources or people in their corner but in our school they feel safe to grow and I want to give them all the tools they need to do so.
