9 Year Old with Cerebral Palsy Raises Money for Disabled Sports

Evan Williams is a nine-year-old who loves to play football, soccer, golf and basketball. Although he has cerebral palsy and uses crutches, he is active in a wide variety of sports and is now raising money for the program that helped him realize that he could participate in these sports.

Evan is raising money for the New England Disabled Sports program. The program began about 25 years ago teaching kids and adults with disabilities how to downhill ski. The program has expanded in the last five years to include a variety of sports during all four seasons. Like most people who try skiing, Evan was nervous the first time he tried it, but he found that he really enjoyed swooshing down the slopes.

An Article in the Brookline Mass. newspaper describes how Evan became involved in the program. About a year ago his physical therapist informed him and his family about the program. His enthusiasm for sports caught the attention of his instructors. With some training, Evan has now learned to downhill ski, water ski, and ride a bicycle.

Evan's goal for the fundraiser is to raise $5,000 for the program. According to his mother, he had raised $3,000 as of the tenth of January.

Evan is looking forward touch football. According to the article, his friends have a adapted the rules a bit for him. If the football hits his crutches where he could have otherwise caught it with his hands, it counts as a completed pass.
