EMPOWER SPORTS CELEBRATES 35% GROWTH WITH ROTARY PARTNERSHIP
 

Posted by David Lariviere on Nov 28, 2017
"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, who was joined by his colleague Demetria Stanfield.
 
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 developmental distinctions and their typically-functioning peers. Founded in 2011, Empower Sports hosts year-round programming, including basketball, softball, and fitness training. It serves more than 400 families in Medina County and Northeast Ohio.  We are delighted and grateful to be a growing community partner with Medina Sunrise Rotary. During the past year, there has been a 35% increase in the number of participants in our programs and over 2,500 hours of volunteer service. Together, we have a positive impact in Medina County by helping families and children in need and making a difference.
 
"When you empower someone, you turn a disability into ability.  You transform doubt into confidence. You allow the impossible to become possible."
