The Turn is a nonprofit organization in Northeast Ohio dedicated to improving the health and wellness of people with physical disabilities, free of charge, through innovative programs combining functional fitness training and adaptive recreation.
Weekly programming is conducted by appointment year round (45 weeks per year) on the campus of the Wharton Center at North Olmsted Golf Club for individuals and groups.
The Turn participants represented a broad range of physical disabilities, including stroke survivors, amputees, traumatic brain injuries, visual impairment, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
The Turn is truly a unique opportunity for the physically disabled community. It’s incredible to witness the physical and social impact the program can have on a participant. We hope you will join us!Trevor Hazen, PGA
