Feel like using it to give a GIFT that keeps on giving?

 

 

 

 

It would be considered an EAR-ly Christmas present!

Donations would make us TWINKLE from our little tiny elf heads to our toes!

Open Streets: Cut the mustard, and Ride the Route this weekend in Fort Collins!

When asked about what he is  looking forward to most this Sunday as part of Open Streets,  Nick replies, “Mustard!  Yes, folks, there will be vendors, who will most probably be offering, a mustard…which apparently is very exciting!

Open Streets is a hip new, FREE event in Fort Collins that Awesome in Action has the good fortune to participate in this weekend.

On Sunday, from 10 am to 3 pm, a route running from North to South Fort Collins will be blocked off to traffic in order to provide a safe family-fun environment.

There will be face paint, bouncy castles, games, sidewalk chalk, snacks, and treats all along the route offered by various organizations and businesses throughout Northern Colorado.

 

Awesome in Action will be hosting a booth of experiences.  There will be an opportunity to race a friend in a manual wheelchair obstacle course,

 

converse or direct a friend through a maze with Augmentative Communication (using speech devices supplied by our favorite PRC Representative, Samantha Strong!)

 

 

 

and try out adaptive sidewalk chalk! (IF you can get it away from NICK for long enough!!)
