Impact StatementThe Austin River City Rec'ers has assisted hundreds of individuals in wheelchairs and with other forms of disabilities maintain a healthy and active lifestyle through our sports programs. Members of the organization become part of a community that help each other through the gauntlet of life with a disability. As a result all members become more self sufficient, maintain an active lifestyle and rely on community services less.
Needs StatementThe Austin River City Rec'ers utilize funds for a multitude of programs with the basketball teams being at the forefront of our efforts. We sponsor three basketball teams that compete in the NWBA Juniors (the Kidos!), Division 2 and Division 3. The Juniors division is for kids until the age of 18. Division 2 is an ultra competitive division for adults. Our Division 2 team has placed in the top 8 in the country since they entered six years ago. Division 3 is a recreational league we use to familiarize new players with the sport and enable them to compete at the highest levels. 100% of donations go to funding adaptive sports programs. Our goal is to raise $25,000 which represents our operating budget for all programs every year.
