I haven't volunteered here but I would love to do some volunteering. It seems very professional and a great way to help out in our community.

Despite any physical or developmental challenges they face, these Exceptional Athletes were courageous, inspiring individuals. It was an honor to have spent the day with all of them, helping them have fun and providing a place to play, compete and socialize without judgement. The organizers and other volunteers I worked with were ALL extremely welcoming and went out of there way to help me, help the athletes. By the end of the day, I was humbled. I can only strive to live my life with the compassion and bravery I saw in every Athlete I met. I cannot imagine anyone volunteering for any Exceptional Athlete event, not having a really fun day and being inspired as a result of the experience.

A very good opportunity to inspire and motivate children with disabilities to stay active and establish everlasting bonds through sports and other recreational activities.
