Challenger Little League
If you hear loud cheering coming from Staples Park in Lake Zurich on a Sunday afternoon, you can be sure there are baseball games going on. These athletes are children with special needs who are members of Lake Zurich Baseball and Softball Association’s Challenger League.
The hallmark of the program is the inclusion of “buddies”, local youth aged 11 and older, to play along with and assist the players in all aspects of the game. This year, there are about 60 players and over 100 local youth “buddies” involved in the program.
Another aspect of the program is the provision of a small meal after each set of Sunday games. Alpine Chapel is looking forward to providing another post-game meal this year on Sunday, June 2nd. Sign-up below to help or donate.SIGN UP
