We are to be on the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital list of be.well program partners by sponsoring the program in Cincinnati Parks. With collaboration between parks, healthcare providers, and community partners, we are improving the lives of children and families who need it most. Part of Cincinnati Parks Foundation’s mission is to activate park spaces through engaged programming. This partnership helps meet the health goals of the Cincinnati community through the healing power of parks.

Each year, this partnership will allow for hundreds of children with disabilities and their families to get outdoors and exercise together for FREE. Each program begins with a pre-assessment by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital staff and concludes with a post-assessment.
