What is the Easterseals/CAI Volleyball Challenge?

For over 40 years, the Volleyball Challenge has raised critically-needed funds to help Easterseals provide exceptional services to children and adults with disabilities so they can achieve their greatest level of independence.

The 2024 Easterseals/CAI Volleyball Challenge has two locations and dates this year to choose from. On March 9, 2024 at William Penn High School in New Castle Delaware, and on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at Delaware State University in Dover, Delaware. Play at one location or both! If playing at both, you only pay one registration fee.

To join in the fun, team captains invite 6-10 individuals to become part of their team to play in a 90-minute rotation on one of the two days of the challenge.

Each team is encouraged to raise a minimum of $1,500. For a team of 10 people, that's a commitment from each team member to raise just $150!

By participating in this event, everyone can help change lives. Here are just some examples:
  • $150 helps provide physical therapy for a child with developmental delays.
  • $1,500 helps send a child or adult with disabilities to Easterseals' Camp Fairlee where they can experience the joys and challenges of a fully-accessible summer camp.

The Volleyball Challenge offers teams a chance to have fun, exercise, and meet some terrific new people!

Why am I participating in the 2024 Easterseals/CAI Volleyball Challenge?

I want to help make a difference in the lives of children and adults who face significant challenges.

I believe that by participating in the Volleyball Challenge, I am personally investing in a kinder and stronger community and a world filled with infinite possibilities.

I trust that Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore is a fiscally responsible organization. For over 40 years, the National Health Council has cited Easterseals as the nationwide leader among its member voluntary non-profit healthcare organizations for the percentage of program dollars spent on direct client services. Over 90% of revenues are directed to services provided to children and adults with disabilities in our region.

I know that Easterseals stands by its mission to provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.

Why do I need your help?

It's amazing how good it feels to make a difference in the lives of others. I'm committed to making a difference, and I'm asking you to support me. With your help, we can join Easterseals in creating solutions that change lives.

What better reason is there? Please give what you can!
