Abstract

The Center for Allied and Unified Sports and Exercise (CAUSE) is a weekly sports sampling. Since 2017, Daemen College has provided opportunities at no cost for people with disabilities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, and experience the camaraderie and sportsmanship that comes with athletics participation. In addition, CAUSE provides a venue for caregivers to access athletic-based care, participate in health and wellness programs, or simply experience the joy of watching a loved one compete. Under the supervision of Daemen Athletics Coaches and Faculty, Daemen Students and Student-Athletes are paired with participants to engage in activities that promote sport, exercise, and socialization. During sessions, caregivers can enjoy time to themselves, use the Fitness Center, or socialize with other caregivers. CAUSE receives grant funding from The Children's Guild Foundation, Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Legacy Funds at the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, Margaret L. Wendt Foundation, Buffalo Bills Foundation, and Wegmans.
