Individuals with disabilities are living longer than ever before but they still lag significantly in overall health as compared with their nondisabled peers. There are many contributing factors including lack of knowledge and a more sedentary lifestyle. Healthy bodies and minds are the foundation for building a successful life. Inclusion Connections offers many opportunities to get active and improve overall health. The IC Taekwondo and Speed Stacking teams participate successfully in local and national tournaments, and even qualified for the Junior Olympics! Our ongoing partnership with HyVee allows our clients to learn about cooking and eating healthy foods. We have partnered with Olathe YMCA Challenger to offer swimming and other exercise opportunities, plus social get-togethers. Zumba classes help clients stay fit, too. Other activities IC has offered include bowling, archery, kickball, soccer and tennis. Classes which teach life skills help clients prepare for independent living. Most recently, many of our clients participated in a study with Kansas University where they participated in a twice weekly exercise class utilizing technology such as fit bits and iPads. This was very motivating and we hope to secure the technology to continue these classes on our own.
