The Endeavor Program began in 2000 as two small teams of boys and girls with developmental and physical disabilities looking for a place to play. After the Boys and Girls Club of Alachua County agreed to host the league, Endeavor teams met once per week to play baseball. Ten years later, the program has grown to include new players and new activities. And the Endeavor program continues to afford participants, who have a variety of abilities and disabilities, some important opportunities. Children and young adults participate, interact, socialize, and succeed within a community of friends and supporters. In 2009, the program became “Noah’s Endeavor” in memory of Noah Voelker. Noah’s spirit is reflected in the fun of the program and in the smiles of participants.
We need your support!
The Endeavor program has grown to encompass a whole lot more than just baseball. We’re now playing soccer, basketball, pool, table tennis, and more.
Endeavor participants are creating arts and crafts, swimming, bowling, and enjoying music and dance. Your support enables us to continue playing, growing, and learning—about each other and our community. Help us to support Endeavor participants of all ages and abilities in growing, learning, playing, and creating in the community.
