Spectacular Sprints on Wheels

For many years through the millennium the Park Foundation in coordination with the Northwest Suburban Special Recreation Association (NWSRA), the Palatine Park District and the BlazeSports Clubs of America hosted a free community wide event to gain awareness and enjoyment towards individuals with disabilities. The free event was held annually in coordination with Street Fest in Palatine, a community wide summer festival, and included street sprints for individuals who use a manual or powered wheelchair or are ambulatory with a physical disability. While the event is no longer offered the Foundation remains committed to ensuring the awareness to assist those with mental and physical impairments are provided with opportunities to gain a full quality of life.
