Irvsra Staff  PEKIN, IL
The Illinois River Valley Special Recreation Association ( www.irvsra.org) is campaigning to renovate approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of space in the historic Pekin Park District Mineral Springs Bathhouse now known as the Robert N. Blackwell Administration Building.

The Illinois River Valley Special Recreation Association (IRVSRA) is a cooperative extension of Pekin and Fon du Lac Park Districts to provide recreational programs and leisure services for residents with developmental disabilities.

The newly renovated space will be used solely by IRVSRA as program and activity space. Our special needs participants will now have a place in the park association to call their own, a familiar, consistent, place to host programs, classes, clubs, day camps, and much more.
IRVSRA itself will be kicking off this $30K fundraising effort with the $1,200 raised in our recent Kickball Tournament sponsored by www.playinforapurpose.com .
The participants, volunteers, and staff at IRVSRA appreciate your consideration in donating to this cause and helping us continue creating more smiles, memories, and experiences like these:

You can help in a few ways:

1. Share this GoFundMe campaign on your personal social media accounts with friends and family to increase its exposure.
