“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.”
