This year, we visited #Edmonton in February (🥶🌨️☃) where the super smart, super athletic folks at Alberta Recreation & Parks Association's SPARC program showed us how they are making recreation programming better for people with disabilities and their families, and the innovative sport programs that foster resiliency through social skills development in youth.
