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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing young adults who use wheelchairs be able to finish a race with smiles on their face. There is nothing like seeing them cross the finish line. Being a part of this organization has confrimed for me personally that occupational therapy is the career for me!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more funding to be able to reach more young adults and to purchase the equipment they need in order to provide a quality services.

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!
