Your Support Matters this Year, More than Ever! 

The last year has been a challenging time for our athletes. Our in person programs were temporarily paused, leaving our athletes without one of their most anticipated events each week. We quickly moved our programs virtual, giving our athletes the opportunity to not only stay active, but to also connect with their peers at a time when restrictions limited gatherings and movement.  We are thrilled to say that over 95% of our in person programs are now up and running. While this is something to celebrate, we still have work to do, as only approximately 35-40% of our athletes have returned to in-person programs, for a variety of reasons, including restrictions where they live and varying levels of comfort. To continue reaching all athletes, our virtual programs are still going strong.



The Enriching Lives Gala includes both a Silent & Live Auction. These auctions are essential to the success of the event, accounting for over 38% of the total amount raised. Throughout the evening Gala guests, including our celebrity guests, will have the change to bid on an exciting lineup of donated auction items. 

Once again in 2021 we will be hosting our Enriching Lives Auction online on our Enriching Lives Auction website:
