– Karen, Mom of Greta (Age 16 | Below Elbow Amputee | 2008 Paralympic Games Athlete)
"After my daughter became a part of your sports program, she stopped thinking about what she couldn’t do, but what she could do… being ABLE to do so many things including rock climbing, water skiing, kayaking, etc. all with one arm has changed her life (and mine as well)!"
Adith Thummalapalli (Age 12 | Muscular Dystrophy)
"I had so much fun at the event. It was my first time ever going water-skiing … and it was really exciting to be able to try something new. I can’t wait to do it again."
Jessica (Age 13 | Born Without Legs)
"I had never been water-skiing, so I was really excited to try it. I love being in the water and I swim a lot, but to go really fast was a great feeling."
Pat ListachWashington Nationals Third Base Coach
"I just hope these kids had as much fun as we did out here. You could tell by the faces of these kids that they had a blast, and we did too."
Matt Bradley Washington Capitals Right Wing
"These kids are amazing. They are so positive and always have a smile on their face. I’m so happy I could participate in this event."
Andrew Horn(Board Chair | Dreams For Kids DC)
"Once they get out there, and they see themselves playing baseball, playing football, running around a track, it's very hard for them to tell themselves that they can't do that."
