96 YEAR PROJECT SUPPORTING PHYSICALLY AND HEALTH IMPAIRED CHILDREN

 One cause in particular truly defines the passion and depth of commitment of the members of the Rotary Club of Sacramento.  For over 95 years, the club has provided consistent support too physically and health impaired children in the Sacramento area.  For over 25 years, the rotary club’s annual Bert Chappell Golf Tournament has provided support to these children.  The tournament was renamed Golf 4 Kids in 2005 and continues to be a major funding source for this cause, providing approximately $35,000 in support each year for programs at four local schools.

 This remarkable record of long-term, uninterrupted service began on April, 22, 1922, under the presidency of Dr. Walter Taylor.  A group of doctors, all members of the Rotary Club of Sacramento, got together with Eugene Benjamin,“Doc” Keating and Ernie Chappell and undertook a program to provide medical services, braces and other mechanical aids necessary for the rehabilitation of orthopedically challenged children.  Most of the funds required to operate the program were provided by donations from Rotary Club of Sacramento members. Rotarian Gus Wilson, a surgeon, was credited with supervising themedical work during this period.

Today’s students have varying needs.  Many have multiple disabilities, including spina bifida and palsy, making communication and mobility a tremendous challenge.  Some are able to communicate only through gesturing or pointing. These varying needs require an array of physical and technological aids
to enable the children to participate in therapy and educational classes. 

Rotary funds have provided a variety of improvements such as specialized computers, keyboards, and communication devices.  In recent years there has been a significant need for wheelchairs of various types – some operated merely by head movements, for example.

 This year special emphasis has been placed on an adaptive physical education program that will utilize special bikes, mats, and other equipment to improve mobility and independence.  

Thank you for your support of the Ralph Richardson Center, Luther Burbank High School, Fern Bacon Middle School and Bowling Green Charter School.
