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 Adaptive Sports Ohio.

About Adaptive Sports Ohio:
Adaptive Sports Ohio is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to remove barriers to ensure that individuals with physical disabilities have a chance to play, and utilize sport to elevate ability and empower futures.

Increase awareness and support Adaptive Sports Ohio by creating your own fundraising page here.  If you are unable to attend our event and would like to show your support for individuals with disabilities, you can make a donation here.
