The Light Up The Night Gala aims to raise awareness and funds for a local non profit for kids with disabilities here in the rio grande valley – Capable Kids. The gala will also help fund a life-changing project: a disability-friendly park in McAllen that is inviting to all children, regardless of ability. There are only a few parks serving the special-needs population south of San Antonio. A high-quality, accessible park will welcome the Valley’s special-needs children to be a part of the community, not apart from it.

Children with disabilities may have limitations in their mobility, social skills, and independence – but they still want to play, make friends, and participate in all the activities that constitute growing up. An inclusive playground encourages shared play and acceptance by accommodating for the various disabilities that can make play difficult for some children, and thus provides vital opportunities for social interaction, emotional connection, and physical development. An inclusive playground is padded for safety, accessible to wheelchairs and walkers, features equipment adapted for use by children of limited mobility, and incorporates aides for children who are blind, deaf or hard-of-hearing.
