Welcome Emily!

EXPAND is very excited to announce that we have hired a new coordinator, Emily Nelsen! Emily is not a new face to EXPAND and has been around since she interned with EXPAND in Winter of 2015. After finishing her internship, Emily worked as the inclusion specialist for EXPAND for a summer and then found employment as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist at KADEP, the day program for Rocky Mountain MS. During that time at KADEP, Emily was still involved with EXPAND and could often be seen at dances, Friday Night Funs, art programs and more. Emily's first official day will be April 5th. We are so excited to have Emily take on a new role in the EXPAND family! Get to know Emily more at the bottom of this email where her profile is featured.

Spring (and Spring Break) Registration is Open! 

Don't forget to sign up for spring programs. They will start the week of April 5th. We are really excited to get back in the pool, out on the soccer field, stretch on our yoga mats and continue with some great virtual programs. Please reach out if you have any questions about programming. 
Not only can you sign up for spring classes, but we are excited to announce some one-time opportunities during the 2 week gap between programming (March 22nd - APril 4th). Registration for these programs is now open as well. We are going to Gateway, having a Tie Dye party and doing a couple super fun virtual events as well.

Less than 1 Month Till the Polar Plunge!  

This weekends snowstorm reminded me of that icy dip we get to take on April 10th. Remember that half of what we raise goes directly to EXPAND while the other half directly supports Special Olympics. Our funds support our ski team, provide all jerseys, uniforms and equipment for sports and hopefully the funds we raise this year will allows us to bring back our beloved banquet in 2022! Remember that there are no additional spectators this year, but we've got some very fun ideas up our sleeves.
