No Limitations recognized at Baylor Lady Bears Game

We recognized No Limitations at tonight’s Lady Bears Basketball Game. In addition to on-court recognition, No Limitations athletes got a chance to come out on the court a play basketball at half time! 

No Limitations offers flag football, cheer, soccer, basketball, sensory friendly holiday activities, an annual golf tournament, an annual talent show, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and more to kids with disabilities.

No Limitations consists of a large network of volunteers with a common goal: ‍‍‍the overall betterment of the lives of those who live with developmental and/or physical challenges and their families. Many of those with special needs cannot advocate for themselves publicly, and parents/caregivers don’t always have the time due to the overwhelming duties they attend to daily.

Their goals are to love, serve, and learn from this community as they help bring attention to their needs, and thus bring about opportunities, acceptance, understanding, and inclusion in the Central Texas community. Learn more on their website.
