The super man responsible for this organization is my son. He is unwavering in his support for, and belief in, providing opportunities for challenged persons to be treated equally! It is inspiring to see the love this group has for the less fortunate.
I am such a huge fan of Challenged Athletes Playing Equally! My son has autism and loves playing sports. He especially loves basketball and bowling.
Both of my kids play sports with CAPE. My son has autism, and daughter has Aspergers, and both love CAPE! They look forward to their Saturday sports - They've played bowling, soccer, hockey, and basketball. Both of kids had tried sports previously, and rather unsuccessfully. At CAPE, everyone is accepted and met at their level - and it's amazing how much these kids can do when someone believes in them and gives them the opportunity!
Opportunities. That is what CAPE is all about. When children have spent years watching on the sidelines while their brother, sister, friend and classmate play on the field. When they spent hours watching on television and wishing they had a chance to play. Now is their chance. Now is their opportunity. Now is the time for children with special needs to show that games are for playing and they can have just as much fun as any other child.
The CAPE organization has helped my daughter, who has autism, make friends and learn how to play basketball, baseball, soccer and she just won a CAPE bowling tournament! We love the people who run CAPE as well as the other families that participate. It's a great organization with a loving and accepting atmosphere.
This a wonderful organization which offers sports for children and adults with special needs. So many wonderful people have been served by CAPE. CAPE makes sure that anyone that joins this organization not only learns the sports with minimal accommodations but can play the same sports has anyone else. A wonderful organization full of heart.
