BENEFITING: DISABLED SPORTS USA
CapeAble is an organization that helps individuals with physical disabilities become involved in sporting activities. In the summer, CapeAble sponsors cycling, fishing, camping, kayaking, and court sport programs. In the winter, CapeAble partners with New England Disable Sports for skiing and the Cape Cod Curling Club for curling.
I have seen first-hand the wonderful results of participation in adaptive sports. People who, after a stroke, now can ride bikes with their kids again; kids who never thought they could participate on a team playing wheelchair basketball with their friends; people post spinal cord injury now beating their able bodied friends in a kayak race! The positive effects of this program go far beyond recreational fun.
