Sensory Station 

 

Balance Fit Stations

 

The Balance Fit Stations initiative is an innovative project designed to enhance our existing health and wellness programs. This project aims to introduce specialized balance stations that serve as a dynamic alternative to traditional static exercise equipment, like planks. The stations are meticulously designed to improve body movement and vestibular health, particularly for children who are developing their motor skills and body awareness. 

We are seeking individuals with: 

  • Proficient woodworking skills and experience in construction or carpentry. 

  • The ability to perform tasks such as measuring, cutting, and safely replacing worn planks with precision and care. 

  • A commitment to maintaining the safety and integrity of the balance stations to ensure they remain a reliable resource for children's movement and vestibular health exercises. 

 

Funding and Resources:

To realize the Balance Fit Stations initiative, we are actively seeking donations and funding from individuals, local businesses, and community organizations. These funds will be allocated for: 

  • The purchase of high-quality, durable balance equipment suitable for frequent use by children. 

  • Training materials for volunteers to effectively guide and supervise activities. 

  • Any necessary modifications to our facility to accommodate the new equipment safely. 

 

How to Support:

Support for the Balance Fit Stations initiative can take many forms, from monetary donations to volunteering time and expertise. Contributions will be acknowledged in our facility and through various communication channels, highlighting the invaluable role of our supporters in fostering a healthier community.
