DASA Video Testimonial

Imagine not having the mobility or strength to perform daily functions and personal care, or transfer from a wheelchair to a bed? What if the help you needed to be stronger and more independent were not available to you?

These are the daily struggles that stop children and adults living with physical, visual, and hearing disabilities from having productive, independent, healthy, lives. Lives everyone should have the chance to live.

Thanks to the Disabled Athlete Sports Association (DASA) of St. Louis, St. Charles, and Columbia, Missouri, with the help of donors, sponsors, and volunteers like you, individuals with disabilities are getting that chance. DASA is dramatically impacting their lives and their families’ lives with physical and emotional achievements beyond anything they’ve experienced before.

Celebrate your special someone and honor his or her memory with a gift to DASA. Each donation is recognized with a letter to the individual or family that you designate.

Did you know you can donate with more than just dollars? DASA athletes are always in need of donated goods and services, such as sports equipment (elbow/knee pads, Therabands, free weights, swim caps, etc.); traveling team needs (gas station gift cards, airline frequent flier miles, hotel points, etc.); technology products (laptops or desktop computers, copiers, printers, scanners, etc.); and other items (bottled water, energy bars, etc.).

When estate planning, consider making a meaningful gift to DASA to enrich the lives of people with disabilities and subsequently gain very significant tax benefits.

Spread the word about DASA on social media when you take action to donate, support, attend an event, volunteer, or get involved. The power of community can achieve great things and create very successful fundraising campaigns from those who are passionate about our cause.
