KEEN 30th Anniversary Logo

To celebrate KEEN’s 30th anniversary of providing free programs of recreation and fitness for youth with disabilities, we are proud to announce our new Mission and Vision Statements. KEEN’s direction for the next 30 years will be focused on inclusion, empowerment, and community impact.

KEEN’s Mission: Empower youth with disabilities and impact volunteer coaches through participation in free, non-competitive, one-on-one programs of physical activity and fun, supporting the overall health and well-being of all participants.

KEEN’s Vision: Create communities in which individuals with disabilities have equal opportunities for recreation, fitness, and friendship; provide families with respite and a supportive network; foster a lifelong commitment to positive change for volunteers through their engagement with KEEN athletes; develop partnerships to actively promote disability awareness.

KEEN will continue to be guided by our core principles of accepting every child, regardless of the nature or severity of their disability, providing all programs entirely free of charge, and meeting the needs of the individual athlete, allowing everyone to find success and joy.

Ray Bennett

It is with deep sadness that KEEN USA shares the passing of long-time board member, Ray Bennett. Ray's passion for serving his community, kids, and people with disabilities while providing opportunities for volunteerism all came together for him at KEEN. His support of KEEN, both personally and through Marriott International was ongoing. He will be greatly missed. Our deepest condolences to his family.
