Kevin Kendrigan's dream was that the creation of Northwest Special Recreation Association (NWSRA) would provide a place where people are celebrated for their abilities and everyone can access recreational programs specifically designed to meet their needs.  NWSRA continues his legacy by providing over 2,000 recreational programs annually that meet the diverse and unique needs of children and adults with any type of disability.  Through community outreach, analysis of trends and evolutional programming, NWSRA leads as a “one stop shop” for recreation.

 

Kevin was always forward thinking, and had a clear vision, as NWSRA programs and services would be at the forefront of community-based therapeutic recreation. To achieve this, he established Special Leisure Services Foundation (SLSF) to provide the additional dollars needed to ensure sustainability, affordability of programs and continued advancement.

 

Kevin’s Club is a group comprised of those who understood his dream of reaching for the stars and creating the unique programs and services that break down barriers for individuals regardless of their ability.  It is also a group of individuals willing to make an annual financial commitment to make this dream a reality.

It takes a village.  Through partnerships with donors who are committed to Kevin’s vision, SLSF will provide the necessary funding for NWSRA to meet growing demands, provide innovative programming, and open new doors of opportunity within our communities.

 

Cathy Kendrigan, Kevin’s widow, talked about this new initiative, stating, “I am touched by the fact that Kevin's legacy will be extended in this way and, more importantly, I'm sure he would approve.”
