The agency and foundation is looking for donations to assisted us with the building of an ADA accessible playground. The playground will be next to our 17000 square foot facilitly that opened in May of 2014.

Lincolnway Special Recreation Association (LWSRA) has provided adaptive and special recreation services for individuals with disabilities through a cooperative agreement with Frankfort, Manhattan, Mokena, New Lenox, Peotone and Wilmington Island Park Districts. LWSRA is an integral part of the overall recreation services of each of our partners. LWSRA programs are for individuals from preschool through adult who have recreation needs that are not met by regular park district programs.

LWSRA offers a wide variety of quality programs, including participation in Special Olympics Illinois, each season to residents of all ages and all abilities. Social programs, programs for children, trips, special events, athletic programs, and an adult day program, are some of the many choices provided in our brochure which is published three times a year.

Fundraising for multiple things is rough but the Playground is doing well. We just received another $4000 check in the mail today for the Playground. I am up to $600 on my trip to Japan to Coach Team USA and my buddy Adam Murphy is up to $205 for his team to get medical supplies to Africa.
