I've Fallen and Can't Get Up

My students need two wheelchairs for the those days they sprain an ankle in dance, gym, or musical theater.

My Students

Our students are dynamic individuals who attend our school for either visual arts or performing arts. Their imaginations are second to none.

Our students are quite unique, as they have to audition to attend our school of the arts.

They are creative and imaginative, and are from all walks of life and economic backgrounds. Using a hands-on approach and "learning by doing," our students are taught the arts by both full-time professional teachers certified in their arts disciplines and area, and national professionals who teach master classes throughout the academic year.

Our school is located in the historic African American neighborhood of Washington Heights. Almost half our students are on free or reduced lunch.

My Project

No students sets out to injure themselves. Unfortunately, in an active school where students are engaged in rigorous dance programs, rehearsals for musical theater, participating in physical activities during gym, accidents happen. Our school nurse is actively dashing from building to building to help those students in need of some tender loving professional care, and having two fully functional wheelchairs will make all the difference in meeting the students critical care needs. No student should have to be stranded because we don't have a wheelchair to move that student to the nurses office for her to attend to their medical needs.
