World T.E.A.M. Sports' long history of inclusive sporting events for disabled and able-bodied athletes comes to mind as we celebrate a successful Face of America ride to Gettysburg this April 23-24. Oregon athlete Ken Snelling provides this newspaper image from the very first World T.E.A.M. Sports event, the Ride Across America, from October 1987. Ken is among the few athletes who can say he participated in our first event and our most recent event. ‪#‎weallridethesameroad‬

World T.E.A.M. Sports changes lives through athletics. We use sporting activities to challenge disabled and able bodied men, women and children to reach accomplishments thought to be impossible. At World T.E.A.M. Sports, “The Exceptional Athlete Matters.” Every participant in our events is exceptional. Disabled participants increase self-confidence, are a model to other disabled citizens, and inspire the able-bodied.

Changing Lives through Sports
Introduction
World T.E.A.M. Sports is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization chartered in North Carolina and headquartered in Holbrook, New York. For more than twenty years, World T.E.A.M. Sports has organized all kinds of athletic events for disabled and able bodied citizens – mountain climbing, white water rafting, biking, and more.

Since 1993, we have used athletics to challenge disabled men, women and children to accomplish goals they never thought possible. In all our events – whether mountain climbing, biking, white water rafting or many other sports – we include both disabled and able-bodied participants.

Four things always happen at our events:

• Disabled participants build self confidence and physical fitness.

• The disabled provide a role model for other disabled citizens, encouraging them to take up physical activities.

• The disabled become a moving inspiration to other participants and to spectators when they see that disabled individuals can meet challenges beyond anyone’s imagination.

• The disabled and able-bodied participants learn to work as a team to overcome those challenges.

We change lives through sports.
