KEEN for Coffee - Nationwide Event to Raise Funds for Youth with Disabilities

KEEN for Coffee is a fundraising event to support KEEN - Kids Enjoy Exercise Now. KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities at no cost to their families and caregivers.

Washington, DC, August 18, 2015 --( To support kids with severe and profound disabilities and raise awareness of KEEN Programs, KEEN is asking people across the nation to get together with friends, family and co-workers to enjoy a fun coffee party in aid of youth with disabilities - it is a great way to come together for a great cause. Supporters are encouraged to host a morning coffee party, office coffee break or evening party and collect donations for KEEN USA. Funds raised are donated to KEEN programs, minus the host’s expenses.

Registration is free and available online and fundraising has incentive based prizes.

“As the mother of two KEEN athletes who both have autism, I have many KEEN memories. One of my earliest memories is watching my son through a window at the gym playing with one of the KEEN coaches. I had never seen anybody having fun with my child before…and I can’t begin to tell you what that felt like. Other recreational programs say “anybody can participate,” but as I learned a long time ago, that’s simply not true. At KEEN, that statement is 100% true and for more than 14 years there has never been a time when both of my children weren’t happy to be there. At KEEN, they can be themselves and be accepted.” -Mother of KEEN Athlete

KEEN provides physical activity opportunities for one of the hardest to serve populations of cognitively and physically disabled children and young adults in our communities. Our KEEN athletes have autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and other significant physical or intellectual disabilities. For our athletes who have extensive cognitive and/or physical disabilities or those who are nonverbal, KEEN is the only organization that can accommodate their special needs.
