About Casey's Challenge: Casey was born with spina bifida that left him paralyzed from the waist down. From a young age, he had the opportunity to participate in adaptive sports which changed his life. He desires to see other individuals with physical disabilities healthy, active and participating in sports. Due to the high cost of equipment, many are unable to participate. All proceeds of Casey's Challenge will directly benefit ASPO.
