Break Description

LIFESPAN is a North Carolina nonprofit program for children and adults with disabilities. Come Spring 2017 we will embark on an Alternative Spring Break to spend our week at several of their 19 locations in Charlotte, NC. What our days would look like throughout the week, we could be; helping to plant a garden, organizing a room, putting together equipment, painting walls, reading books, playing games with toddlers, making bird feeders, teaching an exercise class or attending an afternoon DANCE PARTY. We will return from Charlotte, NC with hearts filled by hugs, smiles, hi-fives, new friends and joy. Plus a true sense of accomplishment, that you have spent your spring break, touching others with disabilities lives. When you leave LIFESPAN, you will not remember spending time with children and adults with disabilities. What you will remember is a wonderful group of adults and children with “abilities” that illuminate their communities.
