Our Impact By the Numbers
DASA is honored to help our athletes change their lives in dramatic and positive ways. But don’t just take our word for it – take a look at our impact by the numbers.
Approximately 21 million Americans, including military veterans, have a physical disability; 38.2% suffer from obesity and 16.3% become diabetic. Research shows that daily physical activity and the power of sport enhances self-esteem and peer relationships and results in increased achievement and better health, enabling a higher quality of life. DASA sees these same results in thousands of athletes across Missouri – it is what motivates us every day to be there for these individuals.
