Team Champions Inclusiveness through Athletics

Todd & Nicholas Stone

Nicholas Stone loves playing basketball and is a valuable member of the team at Deep Run High School in Virginia. Although Nicholas has DM, his diagnosis doesn’t prevent him from participating. In fact, the entire team is made up of students living with developmental or physical challenges.

 
“Nicholas and the other kids work so hard to make this happen,” said Todd Stone, Nicholas’ dad and a member of the MDF Board of Directors. “It’s so moving to see the entire school come out to support them. It gives us a lot of hope.”
