To enhance the life experiences of those physically and learning disabled individuals by encouraging them to reach their goals and rise above any obstacles which will give them an opportunity to develop to their full potential; thus, realizing that the opportunity of a challenge is rewarded with success.
- 54 million Americans are physically disabled
- One of four children do not participate in elementary or secondary physical education programs
- 143 million Americans are family members of persons with disabilities
- 66% of Americans are disabled for more than 6 months of their life
- 3,000 people daily become amputees
These are just some of the facts that suggest a great need to assist.
How can you help?
The need is great! Many disabled people do not have the resources available to help pay for special equipment needed to become active. Statistically they suffer in employment and educational resources needed to contribute to society. You can help open avenues that will prevent those with disabilities from being handicapped.
