Reaching Your Stride

Reaching Your Stride

A transition seminar for patients with limb differences and their parents, Reaching Your Stride is a time for education and inspiration. It is a day when children, adolescents and parents can share experiences and explore new opportunities in an open, interactive forum. It is a time for participants to discuss the challenges of living without an arm, a leg, a hand or other limb difference in a supportive setting.

The specialists at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Northern California know the healing that takes place in the hospital is just one step in a patient’s journey. To reach their stride as young adults, kids must be able to identify opportunities, resources and support networks in their homes, schools and communities.

Reaching Your Stride brings patients, parents and adults who have overcome challenges together to share experiences and information. Community partners will introduce programs and services catering to the needs of those with physical challenges.

Participants are invited to enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch.
