In 2020 we partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and Metro Denver to support their crucial work with youth, providing a safe place for them to learn, grow and realize their full potential.

In 2021, we partnered with Good Sports to provide in-need sports equipment for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and Metro Denver, supplying new basketball hoops, teeball equipment, soccer goals, bleachers and more to enable play for members of all ages.

    Dustin Stallberg

    Dustin Stallberg started wheelchair basketball when he first moved to the USA in 2012. He was only 10 years old. A few years later he tried wheelchair racing alongside his mother Bianca, who ran. Together they put in work and practiced in their community, looking for roads and tracks that were wheelchair accessible. They completed their first half marathon before Dustin even had a specific wheelchair track chair.

    Then in 2020, Dustin and his mother finished their first marathon. An incredible accomplishment. Dustin is passionate about training and is attending the University of Arizona where he’ll continue to push forward to even faster races!
