“One of the most valuable experiences I’ve had with individuals with disabilities in my Duquense University Masters Program was not in a classroom setting. Since last semester, I have been going once a week to exercise with the athletes at Eruption Athletics. These athletes range in age, ability, and physical strength, yet they all have such a contagious joy for exercising and socializing with us each week. On a weekly basis, these athletes inspire me because of their determination and passion for exercise and fitness. Over the past year, I have witnessed each of these athletes grow personally as they improve both their social skills and physical strength and endurance.”

“Andrew has become more aware of healthy exercise routines. He looks forward to going to Eruption Athletics for multiple reasons. As a parent of a special needs teen I believe an experience of participating in, ‘routine workouts,’ is valuable for any individual, especially those with more limited social outlets. This has been an experience that has benefitted both the athletes and the care givers. The health benefits as well as the social aspects are a huge plus for my special needs child.”
