Leaping Beyond is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created by Cristina Frey, PT, DPT.  It was initially a project started during Cristina’s Pediatric Physical Therapy Residency at University of Central Arkansas in 2014.  Leaping Beyond’s mission is to provide children with disabilities the chance to play sports like basketball, baseball, swimming, and more in a safe and fun environment.  During each program, participants receive specialized attention from pediatric therapists designed to challenge each child to increase their activity level, aerobic fitness, strength, and balance in a safe, fun and rewarding atmosphere.  Every camper has a “buddy” (volunteer from the community) to assist them throughout the program.  Since the first summer of Leaping Beyond’s adaptive sports camps, the organization has grown to provide adaptive swim classes throughout the school year and 6 weeks of summer camps at various Central Arkansas locations.  For more information, please contact us.  We would love to meet you!
