There are over one billion people worldwide with a disability. There are over 54 million individuals with disabilities in the USA making up the largest minority population. There are 20 million families in the Greater Philadelphia Region with at least one member with a disability. Disabilities do not discriminate against age, gender, race, or religion. There is ONE organization in Philadelphia understanding these statistics and are willing to address some of the side effects of disabilities through sporting experiences. Access Sports Experiences, since 2002, with only two fulltime and one part-time employees provided; 150,000 sporting experiences, 300,000 handshakes with pro athletes, 35,000 autographs and countless lives that have been transformed through these experiences. At this holiday season, think how many more of those 20 million families we can reach through YOU by GIVING a generous donation. ASE has done amazing work, being noted as the 2015 Non-profit of the Year by the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. Lives have been positively changed. Inclusive programming has generated community and acceptance to thousands who had never belonged. Over a hundred thousand people, their families and communities have benefitted from ASE. Help us reach hundreds of thousands more. Together, we can make a difference.
