About Casey’s Challenge

Casey’s Challenge is an invitation to the community to rally behind athletes with disabilities and support their quest to participate in sports and recreation.  Casey was the inspiration behind the creation of Adaptive Sports Ohio and was the first athlete in the state to participate on his track team using a racing wheelchair.  Adaptive Sports Ohio is creating opportunities for individuals with disabilities to be included and active.  If you believe in the power of sports and that everyone should have access, then sign up to support our mission to ensure that everyone has a chance to play!
