Who do we serve?
Any individual with a special need.
How does it serve the community?
Families constantly struggle with an inability to provide certain experiences to their special needs loved ones due to several factors such as accessibility cost, availability and eligibility. we aim to remove those obstacles and provide experiences and resources that they might not be otherwise able to participate in.
We want to build bridges for people in the special needs community.
We provide an outlet for these individuals to show the world their character, be recognized for who they are instead of for what they may "lack" and completely eliminate the "pity factor". We give them an opportunity to gain confidence, boost self-esteem and provide them with memories that can change their whole outlook on life. This pageant is a judgement-free, safe place to express themselves.
Many people take for granted the feeling inside when they are made to feel like the whole world revolves around them, be the star of the show, even if it is only for a moment. One experience can change their entire quality of life, give them something to motivate them and encourage them to succeed and keep fighting.
A great many of our participants may never get the opportunity to feel what it's like to win an award for their athleticism be recognized for a special talent or win an academic acclaim. We strive to give them the experience of winning, feeling special, and being loved and cherished.
