VARILITE supports opportunities and activities which promote and expand independence, connectedness and empowerment in the lives of wheelchair users. Some of the organizations we support include:
Seattle Adaptive Sports
Seattle Adaptive Sports is dedicated to the promotion of the well being of physically challenged individuals, by giving them the opportunity to participate and compete in athletic and recreational activities, including basketball and track. SAS participants benefit from the physical activity and socialization opportunities offered by the organization, improving self-esteem and physical well being, as well as independence.
SAS serves over 100 athletes from the Western Washington area, as well as sponsoring events drawing teams from across the country. Our athletes are physically challenged with disabilities including amputation, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, low vision, joint damage, severe scoliosis, spina bifida, transverse myelitis, trauma brain injury, and other congenital or acquired conditions affecting their mobility.
