"This is going to be the most FUN you have ever had at a FUNdraising benefit! We are in it to win it for the kids we serve!" SIU Football Coach and Master of Ceremony- Nick Hill
The purpose of this event is to bring awareness to and raise needed funding to host the 8th Annual #DontNeed2 Sports Camp for Limb Different Youth- by NubAbility Athletics and to send dozens of kids from our region like Luken Oden, from Herrin, IL to the life changing camp. This camp brings over 200 limb different youth and their families to Southern IL from across the nation and the world, that like Luken, discover their COURAGE & CONFIDENCE through sport at NubAbiliity. If you go to any little league games in our area, he's the 5th grade stud, making diving catches and belting dingers for days.
Over 80 accomplished limb different athletes as coaches, coach them up in 20 mainstreamed sports and continue mentorning them throughout the year. Imagine the POWER of a MENTOR that looks like you!
Volunteer opportunites are provided to over 600 local residents, the majority of which are high school and college students. The impact of the camp on the lives of volunteers is life changing. SIU Athletics Department is a partner with NubAbility and sends coaching staffs and Saluki athletes to volunteer in assisting NubAbility coaches. Their efforts helped them earn first place accolades by the NCAA for volunteer service hours completed!
