Thanks to you, the Inaugural Disability Athletics Faire was a success. There were over 350 people in attendance. We, Service Center for Independent Life (SCIL) and Mt. San Antonio College, are excited to announce the date for our 2nd Annual Faire; April 8, 2017. Once more, the event will take place on the campus of Mt. San Antonio College (MT SAC) in Walnut, CA. We are expanding the length of the event this year so the hours will be 8 AM to 3:30 PM and are also looking to add five more activities.
Our goals remain the same:
- To increase the quality of life and health of people with disabilities by introducing them to sports activities
- To raise awareness of disability sports and physical activities for the community
By participating in the Faire, people with disabilities discover there are no limits to their potential and there are opportunities that exist in sports and physical activities in their local communities.
We hope to never charge the participants any admission fees, however, there are costs associated with an event like this; they can only survive with financial support from organizations or businesses like yours. Your partnership with the Disability Athletics Faire will ensure that we continue to provide this event at no cost to the participants. This is why we need you to partner with us to sponsor this Faire. Your donation shows your support not only to the participants but also to the families and friends that will attend and support them. With this support a growing number of people with disabilities from within the San Gabriel Valley will be able to participate in the faire.
We have several opportunities for you to become involved with the Disability Athletics Faire; these are listed on the next page. The Disability Athletics Faire planning committee members respectfully request your financial support or in-kind gift for this Faire. Please contact me with any questions or to help arrange your sponsorship. SCIL is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and our Federal ID # is 95-3536676. Checks can be made payable to SCIL c/o DAF and sent to 107 Spring St, Claremont, CA 91711. We look forward to creating a long lasting partnership to help with this event and support the disabled community.
