Inclusive Teen Challenge Provides Adventure, Sports for Disabled Participants
Date:6/25/2013

ity to see how active sports can change their lives.

Providing life-changing experiences is important to the Holbrook, New York-based World T.E.A.M. Sports, founded by business executive James Benson in honor of a high school friendship he had with a disabled youth. “Ricky Prine was a very bright young man,” Benson recalled at a 2007 conference. “He was as disabled as you possibly could be physically, but he was as alive as you possibly could be – mentally and emotionally.” Despite his personal challenges, Prine still managed to be engaged in life.

Through World T.E.A.M. Sports, disabled individuals have been encouraged through active sporting experiences to live life to its fullest. For 20 years, the organization has created numerous events offering sporting opportunities for children and teens with disabilities. In addition to the Adventure Teen Challenge in Washington, the organization also is assisting with the Adventure Team Challenge at Frost Valley, New York September 19-22, a similar teen adventure, with corporate sponsor American Portfolios. In recent years, the organization has partnered with other non-profit organizations to create and manage inclusive youth events in Washington and Boston. In 2011, the first Adventure Teen Challenge in Washington was followed by the Soccer Teen Challenge at Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play at D.C.’s Ellipse with other partner organizations. With Boston’s Ultimate Sports Program, World T.E.A.M. Sports annually assists with sporting events such as the Boston Celtics Experience.

For parents like Linen-Carroll, who watched her son ride a bicycle for the first time and hike on a trail in 2011, she is convinced the Teen Challenge is worthwhile. “Parents, if you believe your child can participate, send them on an adventure with World T.E.A.M. Sports – they will prove to your child or children that they can!”
