The annual Alice Keen Memorial Games is The Inglis House's version of the Special Olympics. Inglis House is a specialty nursing care facility providing long-term, residential care for 297 adults with physical disabilities. It is located off of City Line Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, not to too far from the Mann Music Center.
They are looking for 100+ volunteers to help with the day. Let's bring a good sized group from Give to Get!!
Note: I also posted this event with another group I belong to, so will have a few more peeps.
Named in honor of former Inglis Board member, Alice Keen, the Keen Games include a variety of skill competitions for Inglis residents including slalom, free throw, shuffleboard, chess, golf, bowling and more. They are looking for volunteers to cheer at the games, help run event stations and buddy up with resident athletes. Assignments will be given after the orientation.
The day will begin in Founders’ Hall, just inside Inglis’ Belmont Lobby entrance. Volunteers will start with a pizza lunch and orientation promptly at 11:00am. The day will conclude around 4:00pm after an awards ceremony.
Inglis House has its own parking lot, and there should also be street parking.
There is a Septa bus stop on Belmont Ave in front of their building (I think it's bus #38 and #40, but not entirely sure) and also a Septa bus stop a few blocks away on City Line Avenue.
