Thank you Disabled Sports USA

AquAbility thanks DSUSA for their “I CAN DO ANYTHING” grant for the 2016-17 school year. Funds were used for scholarships that helped 6 children participate in weekly therapeutic aquatic sessions over the past school year. Support like this helps build independence, confidence, self-esteem, and the children learn aquatic and safety skills for life. Thanks DSUSA!
