AY Honor Adapted Sports
The Paralympic Games are a major international multi-sport event for athletes with physical disabilities or intellectual impairments. Pathfinders will learn that disabilities do not necessarily dampen or hamper the ability of others to have fun! They will search the Bible for miracle healings and also think about how to make their club more accessible to those who are disabled.
