This pool party is open to all kids, with and without special needs. George Fox University doctor of physical therapy students will be in the water to offer support and fun for the kids!

Kids with limited swimming abilities are encouraged to wear life vests, and it is requested to have a parent or caregiver available during the event for those who require one-on-one supervision.

There is no charge to attend, as the primary aim is to make this event accessible to all families and kids, regardless of financial situation. There will be an optional donation jar at the door to benefit the George Fox DPT medical mission trips.

Space is limited, so please register soon using this Google form. For more information, visit
