"The Achievers" help others achieve more

With all the sports programs sponsored and coordinated by Optimist Clubs, it's always nice to see there are projects that serve differently-abled youth. The Achievers Optimist Club of Carlsbad, California is one of the clubs that makes a point to reach out to athletes with physical disabilities.

Every year, they provide  support to the San Diego Adaptive Sports Foundation. The money they give helps to ensure year-round access to a variety of sports, camps and clinics.

Additionally, the Carlsbad Optimist Club supports Special Olympics, the Childhood Cancer Campaign, Stand-up for Kids, Military Families, Kare for Kids and the Optimist Scholarship Contests for Essay and Oratorical.

The Carlsbad Optimist Club members are active fundraisers and carry out annual events like the Carl Tillinghast Golf Tournament, a Bowl-a-Thon, Night at the Theatre and Carlsbad Street Faires. One hundred percent of the funds raised by the club supports their work with children.

Thanks to the Achievers for the photo and story.
