Hundreds of adaptive toys delivered to Allina Health’s Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute

[WCCO-TV News, December 08, 2023] During the second Friday of December, Courage Rehabilitation Institute (CKRI) got a big shipment of adaptive toys for CKRI therapists and teachers in the community to distribute to children.

An adaptive toy can cost $100 or more. But these toys are free because engineers with Allina Health community partner Cummins volunteer to make the adaptions for free. These engineers carefully remove the toys from the packaging, make the adaptions and put the toys back into the original packaging. The toys looks like they’ve come straight from the factory.

WCCO-TV interviewed Matthew White, an occupational therapist and manager at CKRI about this work and its impact.
