Adaptive Sports Resources in the DC Metro
Dreams for Kids DC sees itself as the major connector and event leader in adaptive sports. Through our partnerships with the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, as well as other organizations focused on adaptive sports, we now have a database of the organizations, as well as their upcoming events.
