Adaptive Sports Foundation

Warriors in Motion Annual Master Chef Celebration











The Master Chef Celebration is an amazing opportunity to experience the cuisine of dozens of New York City’s most well-known chefs and restaurants.  It will be an evening spent tasting signature dishes and fine wines, and includes a live and silent auction. This year, Chef Jeff Haskell of Trademark Taste + Grind and past Food Network Iron Chef winner will serve as the night’s MC and Event Co-Chair.  Click here to read more about Chef Jeff Haskell.  

For over 30 years, the Adaptive Sports Foundation has been providing sports and recreation opportunities to thousands of children and adults with both cognitive and physical disabilities.  Considered one of the top adaptive sport programs in the country, the ASF has been on the cutting edge of adaptive sports programming and has provided what participants have often described as “life changing experiences”.  In 2005, the

Foundation saw an opportunity to use its knowledge to serve our nation’s severely injured United States servicemen and women.  The ASF is proud to have been one of the first programs in the country to offer sport programs to our wounded military personnel and in the past twelve years has served hundreds of wounded warriors and their families.
