AWB Recognizes St. Luke's Rehabilitation Institute and Team St. Luke's
June 5, 2008
The Association of Washington Business (AWB) honored St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute with a community service award for a “project that motivates people” through its quality community program for physically disabled athletes, Team St. Luke’s. This unique program changes lives, one athlete at a time.
Teamwork, sharing, loyalty and commitment are taught and reinforced through sports experiences. This is especially true for young athletes with a physical disability. Team St. Luke’s, a structured sports team for young athletes with physical disabilities, encourages people to reach for their dreams and achieve success. While developing valuable life skills, Team members also have the opportunity to pursue college sports scholarships, participate in sports camps and compete in elite regional and national competitions. Through Team St. Luke’s, participants develop lasting friendships, master important life skills, and most importantly have fun.
