On June 6, NTSP was proud to be one of the sponsors of the annual “Our Special heroes Golf Classic” at the Texas Star Golf Course in Euless, TX.
This long-running, annual tournament raises needed funds for the Down Syndrome Partnership of North Texas (DSPNT) annual bike camp, iCan Bike, which teaches individuals with differing abilities how to ride a conventional bike. This tournament really makes a difference for children and adults who have always wanted the independence that comes with riding a bike.
Each summer, DSPNT partners with iCan Shine to host a bicycle camp. iCan Bike teaches individuals with Down syndrome and other differing abilities to ride a standard two-wheel bicycle and become life-long, independent riders. This achievement creates a gateway of opportunity, helping them gain confidence and self-reliance in many other aspects of their lives.
DSPNT supports individuals with Down syndrome, their families and caregivers in achieving the universally desired goals of self-fulfillment, pride in one’s achievements, inclusion in the community and reaching one’s fullest potential through social and educational activities.
