Adaptive Sports New England is a Boston-based non-profit organization dedicated to increasing participation in sports among youth and young adults who have a visual or mobility impairment. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to be a part of a team, build friendships, and learn the valuable lessons that participation in sports provides. We currently offer Para-sport programs in swimming, track & field, rowing, and wheelchair basketball – welcoming athletes at all skill levels from novice to Paralympian.
As we enter 2019 and our first Boston Marathon, our goal is to continue to increase participation in sports among athletes with a visual or mobility impairment and gain visibility in the Greater Boston community. Our aim is for Team Adaptive Sports New England to raise $15,000. Funds raised will help us to expand our swimming and wheelchair basketball programs; to pilot a Para-track & field program; and to further advocate for inclusion of youth who have a visual or mobility impairment in school and community sports.
