NEPC Kids Go For a Spin!

New England Pediatric Care periodically loads 20 residents into seven vans and takes them to Roller Kingdom in Tyngsboro, MA. It’s two solid hours of fun, says April Randlett, Director of Aquatics.

The flashing lights and loud music evoke smiles and exuberant laughter as the staff (on skates) pushes wheelchairs and gurneys around the rink. The atmosphere is magic, for some.

“There was one girl we could never get to smile, but interacting with the kids in a different place finally brought it out, April said. “This is why we call this a home.”
