TIES (Teaming Individuals Emphasizing Sports) TIES has a dedicated board of people whose vision is to help people of all abilities to achieve their goals in tennis and other sports. Through this process I have learned the difficulties wheelchair athletes face in regards to funding. Adaptive equipment in order to participate in tennis competition. Dedicated to reaching wheelchair athletes, TIES is looking to expand their message to as many people as possible. Listen to the inspiring story of David Van Brunt and his program TIES! Our goal at TIES for 2011n is to raise $10,000.00 to take a team of wheelchair tennis players to three national USTA wheelchair tennis tournaments in order for them to achieve their personal goals in tennis, which in turn will build their self-esteem, create disability awareness, provide socialization, and build physical strength. All these goals ultimately make our communities a better place in where we all benefit from the intrinsic value of all members of society.
