Joy Collaborative Founder and Executive Director Mark Ostrom together with Julie, a Twin Cities Mom, who is the parent of our most recent Joy Room Recipient, will share the process in creating her son’s Joy room coined “Bennett Park”.
Bennett, age 10, is challenged with muscle control and lack of physical strength as a result of his Spina Bifida. “Bennett Park” was created to be a flexible space to maintain his motivation for exercise as well as provide activities to assist in recovery from multiple surgeries, enhance friendships and support academic progress. Join Mark and Julie as they share a video on the project and how over 20 individuals contributed time and resources in the creation of this functional and fun space. Understand how Joy Collaborative harnesses the power of volunteerism to help support valuable daily living for Bennett and other kids with life-limiting conditions.
Joy Collaborative is a Twin Cities non-profit creating life-enhancing spaces for youth with life-limiting conditions.
