Hundreds of local special needs children and their families will blast off to adventure at a free, no-stress event with superheroes, the Arizona Cardinals, a petting zoo, face painting, dance, bounce houses and more.
The Suzy Foundation is hosting its third annual Tempe Adapted Adventure Day on Saturday, Feb. 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Tempe High School, 1730 S. Mill Ave., in Tempe. This event is designed for children with special needs who may need accommodations for physical and sensory needs.
“We want families to come out and know that they are in a fully understanding and supportive environment,” said Jaime Arredondo, founder of the Suzy Foundation, which is named in honor of her daughter. “For many of these children and parents, their lives are full of doctor appointments and therapies. But Tempe Adapted Adventure Day is all about letting go and just having fun together.”

The Tempe-based Suzy Foundation partners with Team Asa and the Tempe Diablos to bring the event to families at no cost. Founded in 2006, the non-profit Suzy Foundation assists children with special needs by providing assistive devices and therapies not covered by insurance.
