Burke Expo: An Adaptive Sports & Community Event
September 23 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PMFree
Burke Rehabilitation will host the Burke Expo: An Adaptive Sports & Community Event on Saturday, September 23, 2023. The event will take place on Burke’s main campus located at 785 Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Open to all community members free of charge, the Burke Expo will feature a wide range of adaptive sports and recreation activities, including boxing, cycling, fencing, golf, off-roading and rock climbing.
“We are thrilled to be offering these exciting experiences and sharing the latest innovations in adaptive sports,” said Eileen Andreassi, MA, CTRS, Burke’s Director of Therapeutic Recreation and Adaptive Sports. “This event exemplifies the ‘Burke Difference,’ which centers on giving patients the skills, tools and confidence they need to live fulfilling lives.”
Demonstrations of technologies and equipment will highlight how people of all abilities can engage in an active lifestyle. More than 40 exhibitors will present their products and services. Burke’s canine support program, TheraDogs, will add to the festive community atmosphere. Representatives of both community organizations and businesses will be available to provide helpful information and answer questions. There will also be an opportunity to meet Burke’s highly trained therapists and learn about services. Registration is not required and the rain date for the Expo is Sunday, September 24.
Ms. Andreassi added, “We want to enable people to not only return to the leisure activities they enjoyed prior to their illness or injuries, but also try new activities. The sports adaptations we are showcasing at the Expo open up a world of possibilities for people of all ages and abilities.”
