Bounce Out the Stigma
Since 2005, Bounce Out the Stigma has run and managed its summer and after-school basketball programs throughout the country. This Program exclusively serves children and young adults with special needs. We also provide a window for parents and siblings of Special Needs children to see what their kids can do when provided an opportunity.
Many of the kids entering our Programs have never been given fair opportunities to truly experience basketball fun or have a group of peers supporting cheering on their physical achievements. Bounce Out the Stigma uses basketball and our unique motor skill development exercises to instill self-confidence, provide unique peer support and instill a real sense of achievement. We want kids to demonstrate to themselves that YES, THEY CAN!
Due to the Covid Pandemic, normal fundraising for our camps including camp sponsors' contributions has been very much limited. Our ability to pay for gym rentals, getting to and from locations, camp nurses, and support staff has been truly hampered.
Due to Covid restrictions, many of our special needs attendees have been regulated to school year isolation with limited outlets. Our camps are now more important than ever to restore an outlet to this special need community. An additional sad fact, 2020 Summer Camps and after-school programs were entirely canceled due to Covid. It is essential we can meet the needs of their kids this year.
We are seeking donations specifically for our 2021 camps in NC, SC, GA, FL, NJ, PA. 100% of ALL funds raised will be used for these camps and clinics.
