The selected non-profit from our January meeting was Youth Challenge (youthchallengesports.com) presented by Robin Eisen. Youth Challenge brings together young people with physical disabilities and teen volunteers who inspire each other through adapted sports, recreation and social growth activities. Youth Challenge will serve over 200 children with physical disabilities and nearly 500 teen volunteers this year. Physically handicapped children are paired with volunteers to engage in sports and many other activities. Lessons will be learned while sharing fun times, caring about each other, and making life-long friendships. The kids will sail on boats, travel to parks, and swim in pools and engage in other activities throughout Northeastern Ohio. They have recently opened an east side location at Malvern School in Shaker Heights.
