I teach an adaptive physical education class at Arroyo High School. Many of my students can not walk the half mile out to our tennis courts. In the past we have used the courts to play tennis, racquetball, volleyball, bowling, golf, etc. This area is flat, dry and safe and we even have wheelchair races. However, I have recently added a couple of students who are extremely asthmatic, as well as being orthopedically impaired, and are not able to go out to the tennis courts with us. They miss out on the great activities we play. They do not qualify for wheelchairs through their medical plans. Please consider donating one! On behalf of my students, I thank you!!
