Mission

Newton Athletes Unlimited offers high quality recreational programs to encourage physical, social, emotional and intellectual development to individuals with disabilities.  Programs strive to expand our participants independence and improve their quality of life.  Newton Athletes Unlimited believes recreational activities should be accessible to all and are an integral part of the full and happy lives of our participants.

History

In 1991, a group of parents formed the Newton Area Corporation for the Benefit of Special Needs Athletes, Inc.  It is a 501 © (3) corporation that independently raises funds to support recreational programs for individuals with disabilities.  In conjunction with the City of Newton’s therapeutic recreation program, over 250 athletes are now participating in Athletes Unlimited programs.

In 2013, the board of directors voted to update the name to Newton Athletes Unlimited to encompass the spirit of our participants and focus on their ability to do great things and make strides physically, emotionally and socially.

NAU relies on community volunteers for the success of the programming.  For more info about volunteering, go to our Get Involved page.
