Another engaging week of community service for Medina Sunrise Rotarians began at the Windfall School in Medina with a lively basketball game of young athletes representing Empower Sports.
"Empower Sports is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization committed to providing sports and exercise programs for children and adults with physical and cognitive challenges," said founder and Executive Director Tom Heines.
Our vision is that all athletes with special needs would have access to meaningful sports and exercise programs that foster inclusion, diversity, tolerance and friendships between those with disabilities and their typically-functioning peers. Founded in 2011, Empower Sports hosts year-round programming which serves more than 300 families in Northeast Ohio.  We are grateful for the generous support and participation form Medina Sunrise Rotary which partners with us to have a positive impact in the community, helping children in need, and making a difference.
"When you empower someone, you turn a disability into an ability.  You transform doubt into confidence. You allow the impossible to become possible."
Yours in Rotary Service -
