Making Friends and Making a Difference

Brandon is encouraged by Andy and Win to touch a shark in the Touch Tank. "Do you want to go to a movie this weekend?"

This is a pretty standard question for most teenagers, but unfortunately many teens with disabilities do not hear these words from friends. Win Bennett was sensitive to this issue because his sister Mara has disabilities. Win has included Mara in social activities with his own friends for years and thought other teens with disabilities would enjoy the same opportunities. That is how Fun Times started.

Teens, ages 15 and up, with and without disabilities participating in Fun Times, have attended Saints Games, Twins games, movies, game nights, theater events and bowling.

If you would like more information about Fun Times, call (952) 838-9000.
