The mission of World T.E.A.M. Sports is to provide athletic events to individuals with disabilities paired with individuals without disabilities.
2017-Dralla Foundation Adventure Team Challenge
The Dralla Adventure Team Challenge, Washington DC event brings an exciting physical outdoor adventure to inner-city children and teens with both physical and developmental challenges and offers an opportunity for kids to actively participate in an outdoor sporting event with able-bodied teammates/coaches. The Challenge features hiking, mountain bicycling and water sport stages. World TEAM Sports adapts each stage into an inclusive physical event which engages the body, mind and spirit of each athlete. The able-bodied coaches support and encourage their challenged teammates and together they overcome obstacles and finish each stage together. Regardless of physical ability, the teams must adapt and develop ways to help each other. Whether working together to carry a team member who does not walk or lend emotional encouragement during a difficult challenge, the participants bond with each other and find ways to mutually support each other’s differences.
