Adaptive Sports New England is a Boston-based non-proft 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 2020 and our second Boston Marathon, our goal is to continue to increase participation in sports among athletes with a visual or mobility impairment and gain visibilty in the Greater Boston community. Our aim is for Team Adaptive Sports New England ro raise 8,000. Funds raised will help us to expand our swimming and wheelchair basketball programs and to further advocate for inclusion of youth who have a visual or mobility impairment in school and community sports.
As an intern for Adaptive Sports New England this summer I can say first hand how even the smallest donation allows a child with a visual or mobile impairment to participate in sports and make friends. I hope you will help the cause any way you can!
