Grantee Spotlight: SABAH Inc.

During these challenging times, Project Play Western New York remains grateful for all of our partners in youth sports across the region. As always, we are honored to share the important work of our grantees.

Formed in 1977 as a Buffalo-based nonprofit educational corporation, SABAH (Spirited Athletes Bold At Heart) is dedicated to the mission of enriching the quality of life for individuals challenged by physical, cognitive and/or emotional disabilities. It provides education and therapeutic recreation, promoting fitness, and developing social and communication skills.

Each week, SABAH athletes engage in physical education and therapeutic recreation to achieve their full potentials. SABAH programs enable athletes to improve skills for independent living and foster a healthy lifestyle.

A 2018 grant from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Legacy Funds administered by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo supported adaptive equipment for the School Day Adaptive Ice Skating program. The program provides adaptive ice skating for hundreds of children, ages 5 to 18, from across Western New York.
