Making a difference to the lives of children with special needs

Yet another “Everyone wins” camp, supported by Skylight Financial Group’s Special Needs Planning Team, was recently held in Orlando and has made a real difference to the lives of children with special needs.  The camps, organized by Basketball Assist a non-profit organization, bring together children from diverse backgrounds and abilities to play basketball and other sports.

In Orlando, partnering with the Orlando Magic Youth Basketball Program, children with special needs got to try something new and learn to play basketball in a fun and positive environment. Not only were they taught the fundamentals of dribbling, passing, and shooting but the camp also provided a fantastic opportunity for the children to make new friends and build their self-esteem.

Steve Thompson, Financial Planner in Skylight’s Special Needs Planning Team and co-founder of “Everyone Wins”, said “Everyone Wins is more than a basketball camp.  While they learn to play the game of basketball, they also get to interact with the other kids and just have fun.  One of the great joys is to watch new friendships develop among the players and the coaches.”
