A personal message from the Owner of Pump it up.
Hello Cleveland Parents, Professionals, and Advocates of Kids with Special Needs --
My name is Mary Wilmoth, and my husband Kevin and I own Pump It Up in Middleburg Hts. I wanted to share information about Sensory Night, a special night we created for special kids & families â€“ in hopes that you will find it worthy of passing along to parents you know who would benefit.
The last Monday of every month is Sensory Night at Pump It Up. It's a time when kids with special needs and their siblings and parents -- have our entire facility to themselves. (If you're not familiar with Pump It Up, it's a large indoor party zone with giant inflatables). On these nights, we do not play music or use distracting light effects. Our staff is in-tune to the special needs of these kids, and we always encourage parents to let us know if they have any additional special requests/needs and we do our best to accommodate.
This Night, which is dear to my heart, has been on the cutting block for some time Very few families know about it, and I have no budget for advertising. I was ready to cancel the program last week, then I spoke to a mom who was so genuinely thankful that we were offering Sensory Night, that I felt rejuvenated and determined to try to keep it alive!
Enclosed is a flyer for Sensory Night with all the info. THIS MONDAY, SEPT. 27 is our next Sensory Night. Won't you please help us get the word out to Cleveland's special needs community? If you can pass this along to parents, post it in your schools, and put it to your e-newsletters, we would be eternally grateful (and so will the parents and kids that have already discovered Sensory Night).
Thank you in advance for your support of this important program.
Owner, Pump It Up / Middleburg Hts.
(PS: While Pump it Up is a partner of Autism Society of America, our Sensory Night is OPEN TO ALL kids and families with special needs whether they're on the autism scale, have Downs, or other types of special needs.
