Athletes Helping Athletes, Inc. exists to better the life of the special needs athlete by:
- Providing funding to special needs organizations throughout Bucks County, Pennsylvania (and the surrounding areas) that offer a place for the special needs athlete to fulfill their desire to participate in sports.
- Providing awareness and community support for the special needs athlete through inclusion in local school athletic functions by serving as Honorary Team Captains at the home games for our participating teams.
- Offering other extra-curricular events and activities that provide opportunities for athletes of all abilities and coaches to come together while sharing athletic experiences and a love for sport while developing compassion and mutual respect AND HAVING SOME FUN!
Since our founding in 2001, we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various charities and organizations through our sponsored events, individual team fundraisers and in-kind donations.
AHA, Inc. is extremely grateful for the volunteers, the generosity and the compassion shown to our special needs community. We are amazed at the energy, the passion, and the innovative ideas that each and every school has put into their individual fund raising efforts, plus their individual Honorary Captain Program!
We may have started this endeavor with the goal of teaching our high-school children that it is better to give than to receive; but, in fact, it is through the actions, eyes and smiles of all of the student-athletes who have truly fueled our hearts with the love to continue our quest.
So, welcome to our site. Please take a look around at some of the things we've done in the past and what we're doing in the future. While you're viewing the photo albums on our Facebook page and see all of the smiling faces, be sure to become our friend!
We hope to see you soon!
