MAINSPRING ACADEMY: January & February 2022 – Students embarked on a new and energized year with their first adaptive physical education classes alongside Mainspring partners Adaptive Exercise Group. Special Olympics Basketball and Flag Football took place at the duPont YMCA, with awards presented by Andy Kaufman (owner) and (mascot) Fang of the Jacksonville Icemen, and Reggie Hayward, former defensive end of the Denver Broncos and the Jacksonville Jaguars. In celebration of both Valentines Day and Random Acts of Kindness Week, students exchanged randomly-assigned friendship kits to classmates containing their favorite items.

Thanks to the event sponsors and the 27 event registrants, Miles for Mainspring 2023 raised $9,700 towards continuance of Mainspring Academy’s adaptive physical education program in the 2023-2024 school year. Valerie Shubert, the winner of the step challenge, received a 3-day weekend getaway for two in Flagler Beach!
