ASA is an amazing organization that helps athletes with disabilities achieve their goals of participating in various competitions. They don't stop at just pairing athletes for a single race, they have a mentoring program that builds relationships between the ASA volunteers and the athletes they serve. As an occupational therapy student, it is great to have an organization that enables young adults with disabilities to meet their full potential and participate in meaningful ways! They also use state of the art equipment for their all their atheletes.

I have had the fortune to be part of quite a few of ASA's events. ASA brings joy, passion, and strength to those so often left behind. This organization does things with excellence, professionalism, and grace. This is a non-profit that gets it right. The faces of challenged athletes as they cross the finish lines will give you the chills. Being at these races gives life to everyone there. I truly think this is not just a way the challenged athletes are served, it is a way they serve the rest of us!
