In its 35th year, the Adaptive Sports USA Junior Nationals is the largest longstanding annual multi-sport competition for youth with a physical disability and/or visual impairment in the United States. Give today!
My daughter has competed in the Adaptive Sports USA Junior National the last two years. The experience has really changed her life. Not only has Junior Nationals had an impact on her motivation to compete, it also helped my daughter socially. She has made so many new friends all over the country and continues to keep in touch through social media. Her network of friends and support system has grown and she loves sharing stories with her new friends.
Participating in the onsite clinics has also helped her grow into a better athlete.
Kira has some huge goals of one day going to the Paralympics. She hopes to either compete in the sport of swimming, track and field or triathlons. Thank you to the Adaptive Sports USA Junior Nationals for being a stepping stone to the Paralympics and motivating a young girl to compete in sports!

You can help make the event on July 21-28, 2018 in Fort Wayne, IN a success.
Your donation can help athletes, just like Kira, gain independence and confidence and give them an opportunity to showcase their abilities through sport. Financial support will offset costs of planning and facilitating the national championship event to include athlete recognition, equipment and supplies, facility and venue space, food and beverage, officiating/classification and sport and educational clinics and special events.
Please help Adaptive Sports USA reach our goal of $5,000 from individual donors for the 2018 event.
Thank you for your support!
