“I joined ASI and the Iowa Reapers beep baseball team in 2012. Having ASI partner with the Reapers helped me learn great team bonding and fundamentals of a great sport. Having a disability and still being able to take part in sports with a organization like ASI is a dream come true. I highly recommend joining ASI and taking part in all the fun!”

“ASI means so much to me! I love to bike and RAGBRAI is my favorite week of the year. Without the support of ASI, I would not be able to participate for the entire week. ASI has opened so many doors, I feel like a happier person. ASI is like an extended family that I did not know that I had.”

Emily Medina

“I learned about ASI in 2015, when I was invited by a friend to join the Iowa Reapers Beep Baseball team. For those who may not know this is baseball for the blind and visually impaired. ASI has helped the team with funding for purchasing needed equipment, paying entry fees into the World Series, funds to keep the team’s membership in the NBBA. In 2021, ASI staff also were willing to participate as part of the team so that we could compete in a regional tournament in Ames, IA. ASI has allowed me the opportunity to play I sport that I love. Its funding and sponsorship of this program and others enables individuals with physical challenges to engage in sports and activities. Thank you to ASI for all you do.”

“If you would like a great skiing experience this is the best. Hockey would be our second best thing to do with ASI. You get to meet so many people and the stuff is great.”

I always wanted to join an adaptive cycling team for the camaraderie and ability to help and encourage each other. My experience could NOT have been any better! I’ve not only made friends on the team, but each year I return has me eagerly awaiting and listening for familiar voices!

Please give it a try!  Whether a participant or volunteer, you’ll come away from the encounter feeling better about yourself and having a new respect for your abilities!

We wanted our son (10) to experience things like skiing that he wouldn’t otherwise experience.  Doing adaptive skiing really boosted his confidence that he can do new things like this. It is a great program and really helps provide new experiences. Our favorite part was seeing our son’s HUGE smile that day – and it continued every time he showed the videos to anyone who would listen.
