" A Dream Come True "

Prior to January 1997, local programs for children with special needs were very limited. All children, regardless of their ability and or/capability to participate,
should be afforded the opportunity to be involved in sporting events. Can you imagine what it is like for a young child to sit and watch brother, sister or other
friends play a sport and not be able to do so themselves? I did and as a result a program was established to provide sporting events for these children with
special needs. With the help of my family and the cooperation of the Moreno Valley Youth Federation Pony Baseball, a program was created to serve these
special children. The program started with twelve families and grew to some twenty families over the next five years. At the end of the 2001 baseball season,
some parents asked, what do we do now? They wanted additional sporting events for their children. Once again, my family stepped forward and a bowling
program was formed. We provided these children with two sessions of eight weeks of bowling. As a result of this effort, "Bill's Special Kids" was born.
Our family continued to grow as new children became a part of our program. During the summer of 2003, swimming became a part of our program.
Some 125 children,parents and volunteers are currently a part of our program. Although the dream of my family is not the same as it was in the beginning,
the birth of my special needs grandson; William has created a new dream in our hearts. Our families dream has given children with special needs the chance
to participate in sports and to meet other families that share the same dreams. Bill Yearsley Founder, "Bill's Special Kids"
