February is Recreation Therapy month! The purpose of RT month is to enhance public awareness of recreation therapy programs and services and promote inclusive recreation opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Recreation Therapy utilizes recreation, play, and individual’s interests to improve the quality of life, increase independence, and provide resources and opportunities in order to improve overall health and well-being.

SpoFit provides Recreation Therapy services to both individuals and groups. The concept of Recreation Therapy is incorporated into all programs and opportunities at SpoFit as well. SpoFit has four Recreational Therapists on staff and up to two Recreation Therapy interns each semester. Help us as we acknowledge and thank all our Recreation Therapy staff and interns for all they do for our members and their families.

To help promote and build awareness SpoFit encourages all members to bring a friend to any membership class in the month of February at no cost. Just let reception know they are here to recognize and celebrate RT month and once they sign a waiver they can participate with you!
