Facility Spotlight
rcca pool Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults, Palm Beach, Florida

The preschoolers entering the warm waters of this gorgeous therapy pool in southern Florida have a blast...with squirt guns that is. They also get to dive for toys, climb on floats and surf on boards. But all these games are really exercise in disguise. For the 21 children, many of whom have developmental disorders, the Friday pool sessions help strengthen the body, improve cardiovascular endurance and much more.
