What is the Wave Gala? The Wave Gala is our single largest fundraiser, enabling us to provide our programs to more than 2,000 kids and adults living with disabilities.

In 2020 we couldn’t be together in person but we celebrated virtually with special guests like Lenny Clarke, Zack Gottsagen, Dr. Timothy Johnson, & Patrick Chung who will share memories and stories with ASA Executive Director Ross Lilley and Master of Ceremonies Mariellen Burns!

If you follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook! Check out #EveningWithASA to see how people celebrated with us from home. Whether you popped the champagne & dressed up, hung-out in your pj’s with some takeout, set the table and gathered the family, or put your ASA gear on your pets, we loved seeing see how you watched and celebrated at home!

In 2020 AccesSport celebrated 25 years of adapting land and water sports for disabled kids and adults of all ages, helping all of our athletes challenge themselves physically while creating a positive change in attitude and function, and becoming part of a community of relationships that last a lifetime.
