BrightStone Students Grow in Leaps and Bounds at Ensworth School’s Sports Day

FRANKLIN, TN — BrightStone ensures that its students are active both physically and in the community! Their adults with special needs annually attend Ensworth’s Sports Day program, a one-day event on Ensworth’s campus. During this highly anticipated annual adventure, Ensworth coaches and students provide a unique resource to the special needs communities in Middle Tennessee. BrightStone students are given the opportunity to learn skills that apply to soccer, bocce, volleyball, basketball, and a wide number of other sports on Ensworth’s beautiful campus.

“It’s such an amazing event where the focus is on “ability” vs. “disability”, recalled BrightStone teacher, Randy Price, “this is truly an event where ‘I can’ becomes ‘I did’.

Community partnerships like this are essential for BrightStone’s mission of benefitting adults who live each day with intellectual and developmental challenges. They meet the needs of their students holistically. Daily wellness activities include trips to the Franklin Athletic Club and onsite yoga classes. BrightStone also has a full-time nurse on staff and a contracted physical therapist who provide the oversight to monitor their physical well-being and provide support wherever the students’ activities take them.

BrightStone is so grateful for all the community partnerships that join in the mission of transforming the lives of these precious adults with special needs.
