National Theme: Keeping Everyone on the Move
This year N.S.C.A.R. will be partnering with the OSCAR MIKE Foundation.
The Oscar Mike Foundation is a veteran owned 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that hosts adaptive sporting clinics for veterans with physical disabilities. At these clinics, veterans will do everything from wheelchair rugby to skydiving and so much more. The purpose is to show these veterans that their disabilities do not limit them and that they can stay OSCAR MIKE (on the move).
N.S.C.A.R. will be supporting the OSCAR MIKE Foundation in two ways.
1. N.S.C.A.R. will be raising funds to sponsor the first ever OSCAR MIKE kids’ program where “11 Strong” Kids with physical disabilities will come together and participate in a weeklong clinic filled with adaptive sporting events and leadership workshops.
2. N.S.C.A.R. will also be helping OSCAR MIKE promote awareness of the current rate of veteran suicide problem in America, and their goal of cutting it in half from 22 a day to 11 a day.
This is where the project nickname of “11 Strong” comes from. One name – Two missions.
Through this year’s National Theme, members are encouraged to get active and stay “On the Move” whether that be in their local societies, community, or by being physically active.
