THANK YOU to everyone who helped make SportsAbility a success - all of our sponsors, volunteers, exhibitors and participants - we couldn't do this without you! 

SportsAbility 2023: Our first year back in person since 2019 was a wonderful success!

More than 600 people attended the 3-day event which kicked off with an Opening Ceremony on Thursday evening at the Miracle Sports Field with baseball, great music from DJ Sam, a visit from the Miracle Moose, and tasty snacks from Kiwanis.

The Friday event at TCC was a blast! Students from area schools attended and enjoyed sit volleyball, tennis, archery, a display for the Fish and Wildlife Commission, and a number of other activities. Approximately 25 exhibitors and activity providers from state and local agencies, non-profits, service providers, and community advocates provided information and demonstrations. Performances by the Pyramid Studio Dancers, and from Hart and Soul--a band from Gretchen Everhart School added to the fun and excitement. Hector Del Valle, a nationally recognized, disability advocate, shared his experiences during his more than 38 years of living life from his wheelchair.

On Saturday, we were at Maclay Gardens State Park for outdoor fun! Attendees took part in an array of outdoor activities including sit-ski, boat rides, a climbing wall, EcoRover trail adventures, horseback riding, accessible bikes, nature tours, and lawn games.. A live band provided entertainment throughout the day. There was something for everyone regardless of individual interests, ages, and abilities. 

Thank you to all our sponsors, activity providers, volunteers, and community partners.  We could not have done this without you!

We look forward to seeing everyone next year at SportsAbility 2024!
