Hope Through Sports was founded by the Adams Family and inspired by their daughter, Brynn, who was diagnosed with a life-altering neurological disorder that ended her softball career. She now wears leg braces and uses a wheelchair and crutches, but has discovered adaptive sports like sled hockey and wants to help other kids like her do the same. Hope through Sports helps disabled athletes purchase hockey sleds and other adaptive sports equipment, pay for a camp, or travel with their team to a tournament.
We met Brynn at Fleet Feet earlier this year when she came to buy new shoes after a day at the hospital. She and her family left a lasting impression on all of us, and we're thrilled for an opportunity to support them.
