Indoor Rock Climbing Event Held for Children With Congenital Hand Differences
Cook Children's held an indoor rock climbing event on Thursday at Texas Christian University Recreational Center for patients with congenital hand and upper extremity differences. Children and parents had the opportunity to participate in a controlled and safe environment at this donor-funded event. Patients also created an art project with their hand prints.
“This is a great community event for us and for Fort Worth to support our patients and for our patients to feel empowered,” said Pamela J. Sherman, M.D., Orthopedist at Cook Children's. “A lot of these patients have started with us as babies. Rock climbing really is a way for them to feel empowered and for them to see that it's different but it still works.”
