The adapted kinesiology program at Saddleback College is dedicated to helping disabled students from a variety of backgrounds reach their desired level of physical fitness.

These individuals are able to overcome physical or mental impairments, past injuries, and other degenerative or restrictive diseases through the efforts of the AKP.

In pursuit of its noble goals, the adapted kinesiology program hosted a walk-a-thon and fundraiser on Dec. 14 at the Saddleback track.

This event was an outstanding success, boasting an obstacle course provided by Wounded Warriors, a demonstration from Adapted Cycles, a Tai Chi demonstration, and a luncheon provided by BallPark Pizza.

This event attracted almost 100 participants, and raised $10,000 to be used for future students.
