2014 AWARD RECIPIENT

“I believe this league is empowering everyone to want to make the world a better place by making sure we all live side by side, supportive and respectful of who we are and what we all have to contribute.”

Project Awareness and Special Sports

Project Awareness and Special Sports, formerly Challenger Baseball and Basketball, offers kids with special needs opportunities to participate in community-based sports programs. The program builds connections between mainstream competitive teams and special needs teams, creating opportunities for all participants to experience and develop their sense of teamwork, independence, and self-confidence. The skills players acquire through the program extend beyond the field, empowering them socially and academically. The program is poised to expand further through a partnership with a professional baseball team.
