KEEN - Kids Enjoy Exercise Now

I just learned about this organization on Twitter today and wanted to share the information. KEEN - Kids Enjoy Exercise Now is a non profit organization in 8 cities in the USA and three cities in the United Kingdom. As described on the website:
"KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities at no cost to their families and caregivers. KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals".

This seems like an excellent opportunity for children, their families and the volunteers. I wish it was in my area - I would definitely volunteer! Has anyone had any experiences with this organization? Would love to hear about it.
