Be INCLUSIVE, Be part of the FUN!


EA Family Fun Adventure Day was  TURNED UPSIDE DOWN – due to COVID19 – but it was still a huge success! We restructured our event and moved it onsite at ExercisAbilities to be able to control social distancing and allot participants 30- minute time slots. It was a safe, fun event. To see people exercising while having fun safely was such a joy! Many of our clients and their families attended and had huge smiles on their faces.

We had a great turnout with  91 people signing up to participate in-person or virtually on Saturday. Special Thank You to the many volunteers who showed up on Saturday to make sure everyone a safe, fun-filled time!

Kid and Adults had a ton of fun participating in onsite activities including:
Logo Hunt
Obstacle Courses
Mini Golf
Kids Climbing Wall
Virtual Reality Booth

Each participant received a T-Shirt & Goodie Bag with items donated by ONB Bank and Fleet Farm. Everyone also had the chance to pick Participation Prizes which were donated by Fleet Farm, ONB Bank, Val Koster, and Vicki Allen.

Others had the option to participate at home in the Selfie Exercise Contest and Chalk Art Contest.

With the financial support of registrants, raffle ticket sales, donors, and sponsors we raised $16,953! This is our only event fundraiser of the year and it is free for ExercisAbilities clients to attend. Our goal of $10,000 from Family Adventure Day was reached and will be the financial kick-off to expand our Pediatric Program! We need to make more room and buy the necessary equipment to help these kids asap as they are regressing due to COVID19 restrictions.

Thank you to everyone who was part of this successful effort during a very challenging time for our country, our clients, and our staff.

  • tom“With ExercisAbilities help Tom takes care of his own personal cares, exercises 5 days a week to build up strength in his legs and keep his body functioning. Without it, he would simply be laying in a bed and we all know that is no quality of life. Thank you EA for giving Tom a true chance to recover and live the best life he can despite his disabilities at this time.” - Watch his story here.

  • don“ExercisAbilities relieved most of his pain within an hour of therapy. Since then they have helped Don strengthen muscles he didn’t realize he could control. His walk is improving, his pain is now minimal, he is out and about again, and he again has hope. Wow!”
