NICU Families Northwest Hosts 2nd Annual Wheelie Spooky
Event Makes Halloween Fun Accessible for Children of All Abilities
By: NICU Families Northwest (NFNW)
This inclusive event is an opportunity for children of all abilities and mobilities to participate in the tradition of Halloween Trick-or-Treating in an ADA compliant gymnasium. Children will have the opportunity to "trick-or-treat"
From 2:00 to 2:30pm Wheelie Spooky is open with incremental admission to contain crowd size for kids with special sensory needs. (We recommend families RSVP to info@NICUFamilesNW.org for the first half hour.) The Black Cat Cozy Corner will be available during the event for guests who need a quiet space to collect themselves.
Other event features include creepy creatures from the Portland Insectarium and a Magic Matter Exploration Station with color-changing slime and the opportunity for children to make their own "magic" potions.
"Last year's event garnered so much positive feedback from both guests and volunteers,"
Major event sponsors include Dr. Korin Rasmussen, DC and Rose City Realtors as well as Advantis Credit Union, Advanced Pediatric Therapies, INC, and World of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry.
Wheelie Spooky will take place in the gymnasium at Evergreen Community Church (935 NE 33rd Ave, Portland Oregon. The event is free and open to kids of all ages with a "G" or "PG" audience in mind.
