LUKE5ADVENTURES “ROSIE” CHAIRS MAKE IT POSSIBLE
Using special all-terrain wheelchairs, called “Rosies,” trained volunteers are able to move “hikers” of any ability over rough trails, down staircases, across creek beds, and much more. For many participants, these chairs will make it possible to be immersed in nature in ways that would be otherwise impossible.
THE AMAZING BENEFITS OF PARKS
A growing body of research shows that spending time outdoors in parks improves physical and psychological health. By enjoying this guided, safe programming for families, participants can boost their wellbeing and learn first-hand about the positive impacts that accessible parks can make in their lives.
All hikes depart from Everybody’s Treehouse in Mt. Airy Forest. Specially designed, this treehouse is universally accessible and allows everyone, regardless of ability, to experience the forest’s canopy.
For those who aren’t physically able to Hike IT, Forge IT, Climb IT, Cross IT, or Ascend IT, we can make IT possible.
When you fill out our application, the "onboarding" process allows us to gather an individual and comprehensive assessment of each Hiker's needs. Our "Rosie's" allow us to provide an uplifting experience for everyone in the great outdoors.

Volunteers, or "Sherpa's" are an extremely important component of this program. A minimum of eight volunteers are required per hike.
A Sherpa in the Himalayan mountains physically assists a hiker to get through the valleys, over obstacles and up the mountain. The Sherpa’s help makes it possible for the hiker to realize a dream, without the Sherpa’s help the climb would be impossible.
At Luke5Adventures, a Sherpa does the same thing. They physically, spiritually and emotionally assist an individual impacted by disability in achieving something previously impossible. Although the pushing and pulling “Trail Sherpas” are the most visible, there are many other behind-the-scenes Sherpas who make these experiences happen to their greatest effectiveness.
