We Imagine a World where ALL youth have equal opportunities for recreation, fitness and friendship - regardless of their abilities.
"I thank KEEN for helping me not need braces on my legs anymore." ~ David, KEEN NY Athlete
At KEEN New York, we spend our weekends helping the local special needs population - boys and girls - showing them that they can be Athletes. We run. We jump. We swim. We play. We do our best to keep up with our Athletes. (They have lots of energy). We laugh. Then we laugh harder. We draw. We spend our Saturdays and Sundays, and even some weeknights doing what many of us did as children. We give our Athletes - children with autism and cerebral palsy, children who are wheelchair-bound or non-verbal - the chance to be kids.
I invite you to donate today - doing so will give the gift of free exercise and fun to 250 Athletes with disabilities, and help us reduce the wait list of 150 young people with disabilities needing KEEN programs. Your year end, tax deductible donation will offer families and caregivers much needed respite, and train thousands of new volunteers - adding to the total of over 2,000 volunteers whose lives have been touched by KEEN New York, creating a pool of leaders for tomorrow.
So many children have found a true community at KEEN thanks to generous people like you who have supported our innovative, one-to-one programs. During this time of giving, we invite you to invest in our Athletes once again. In so doing, you will join thousands of caring volunteers and contributors in making a lasting difference in the lives of young people with disabilities.
Wishing you a joyous holiday season! With deepest thanks.
