Posting one more time in case anyone else would like to participate! I really appreciate it :) Hello! I am a graduate student at Worcester State University in the occupational therapy program. I am conducting research on adaptive sports for people with visual impairments. Attached is an 11 question survey, that will take no more than 10 minutes to complete. The survey asks questions about how participating in adaptive sports impacts quality of life and social participation. If you participate in sports and have a visual impairment , please click on the link below. Read the cover letter at the top of the page and answer the questions. Click “submit” when you are finished. All answers and information is anonymous. If you enjoyed the survey, please feel free to share on your personal page on in other groups. Thank you!

In case you missed it. An important message from Executive Director Ross Lilley.

Dear friends of AccesSportAmerica,

First and foremost, the health and safety of our athletes, their families, and our staff is paramount. Many of you have recently received invitations to our 25th Anniversary Wave Gala. We want to reassure you that they were on their way to you before the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Although we are disappointed that circumstances necessitate canceling our Wave Gala, planned for April 28th at the Seaport Boston Hotel, at the heart of all we do is concern for our athletes and friends. As this public health situation continues to unfold, it is with great disappointment that we find we will not be able to reschedule the gala during 2020.

Our annual gala is our largest single fundraiser, raising most of the vital funds that enable us to provide our programs. It also gives us the opportunity to meet with our donors, partners, and athletes while showcasing the impact of the past year and throughout the past 25 years. We appreciate that all of our AccesSport community will be experiencing challenges over the next few weeks, and should circumstances allow, we hope that you will join us virtually over the coming months for our online auction and fund-a-need.

We invite you to join us online on April 28th for a special message, and to celebrate with us in your home with your loved ones. Look for more information in the coming weeks about our virtual celebration.

If you have any questions, please reply to this email or call us at 978.393.1143. Visit www.goaccess.org for updates and information about our programs, events, and tips for staying active while home.

We look forward to keeping you updated and involved, and hope to see you soon.
Be safe, be well.
