The Buddy Bowl sounds like a fantastic program. It is a not-for-profit organization that features both challenged and able-bodiied athletes on the same field. I believe there are different ability categories, and there is even a category for individuals in wheelchairs. Naturally, some of the equipment is adaptive, and travel is periodically warranted.

Many people realize a type of healing through sports, especially when dealing with internal scars. This sounds like a most worthy place to make a donation.

Just came across an interesting article about Nico Marcolongo, an Iraqi war veteran, who founded the "Buddy Bowl" to benefit military veterans.

Essentially a flag football tournament, this football charity fundraiser was founded to help support disabled military veterans, as well as fire and police first responders.

The Buddy Bowl is meant to be a healing experience, a "time to celebrate what is in ourselves and hlep others. It's a time for communities to come together, a chance for civilians to meet service men and women" says Marcolongo. The article also explains that though there are only able-bodied participants in the actual game, the "Buddy Bowl has succeeded in getting disabled vets off the sidelines and back into cleats - many of whom wouldn't have even considered tossing around a football without Marcolong's encouragement and friendship."
