Steve-O's Mission


Steve-O's vision for this foundation was to help Michiana's community with special needs participate in recreational activities, camp and sports.  Steve taught high school health and PE for 40 years while also coaching high school swimming. This is where he became passionate and inspired by his many amazing students and athletes with special needs.  When asked what he'd like to do with funds raised by the foundation, he didn't hesitate to say he wanted to help the kids who were such an inspiration to him!


Where do our funds raised go?

The foundation now offers recreational grants to Michiana special needs residents so they may participate in recreational activities such as Reins of Life, Camp Millhouse, SOLO (adaptive winter sports/ski), Camp Wack (adaptive water sports), Challenger Little League, My Team Triumph and other Michiana recreational activities.    Please click on tab above to download an application and for more details.

We've also supported these great organizations:  Freedom Park in Plymouth, Elkhart Down Syndrome Advocacy Group, Logan's Center, Indiana Ultimate Wings Cheer leading Team, Marshall Starke Development Center Camp O.U.T., Portage Manor Camp Out and Michiana Down Syndrome Advocacy Group.  

We are always looking to support more wonderful Michiana charities that provide recreational activities.  If your charity is in need of support, please apply for one of our organizational grants via the tab above.

Who helps make this Foundation possible?

The Foundation is run strictly by volunteers.   

Our biggest fundraiser is the Barron Lake Triathlon held in Niles, Michigan on the 4th Saturday of August every year.

We also receive donations via our website and online fundraising campaigns.

Stunning site! Do you have any accommodating clues for trying essayists? I’m wanting to begin my own site soon yet I’m somewhat lost on everything. Would you prompt beginning with a free stage like Wordpress or go for a paid alternative? There are such a large number of alternatives out there that I’m totally overpowered .. Any thoughts? Welcome it!. Writer @
