On Friday, October 22nd, Chico State hosted the Adapted Physical Education Sports Day where around 35 children and teens all came together to try out and explore different athletics and activities throughout the day! Marci Pope, an instructor in the Kinesiology Department at the university and also the event coordinator said “Our goal is to reach students with physical and sensory disabilities”

Each participant was paired up with a Chico State student, many were from the Kinesiology department, to lend them a hand and teach them a sport. The purpose of this sports day was to show the kid’s what’s possible, and with Chico State’s own nonprofit, AbilityFirst, students with disabilities were able to compete in athletics just like their peers.
