Summer. It's the best season of the year, right?
That is of course, unless you live in Queensland where it’s 40 MILLION degrees for 4 months of the year.
And we’ve all had those days. The days where it’s so hot that after just 15mins, you have this sudden urge to submerge yourself in a person size freezer with a 7/11 slurpee just to get your body temperature back to normal. And that’s before 9am!
At YCS, we love to get outside on these beautiful days, but sometimes we have to admit that the 40 degree heat can be a little uncomfortable when we’re trying to have a good time.
Add to the fact that some of our participants are in wheelchairs.
Some of these guys are unable to self-regulate their temperature, so we were getting a bit stuck for activities to do.
We’ve put our heads down and brainstorm our ideas to help us keep our participants cool and entertained in this 40-degree business.
We took these ideas for a test run and asked our guys which ones they thought should make the cut!
So here are the tried and tested results, so you too can keep cool, no matter your walking situation. As a cheeky bonus we’ve kept these as low costs as possible, so you have more moola to spend where you’d like.
