Welcome to My Personal Page
Please join me in supporting this wonderful organization that provides opportunities for all people who participate with Opportunity Knocks. Any donation big or small is greatly appreciated and welcomed. This is event is truly special and was the launching point for Opportunity Knocks.
The OK Classic Charity Softball Tournament is a one day, 20-team, co-ed, 14-inch, charity softball tournament, and festival in benefit of the Warriors at Opportunity Knocks. This event began in 2007 as a memorial to a very dear friend of the Warriors who passed away at a young age while serving as an Americorps volunteer in Alaska. The KG Classic, named after Kathleen Garrigan is often considered the launching pad of Opportunity Knocks. Several years later, the event was re-named the OK Classic, honing its focus on the OK mission. The KG spirit lives on at OK, while the Classic continues to be a key fundraising event in support of the programs at OK.
The OK mission is dedicated to providing opportunities and resources for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities so they may pursue their educational, occupational and social interests. We believe in the power of the voice of every Warrior. We believe in an interdependent connection between each Warrior and their community. We believe in a fearless exploration of life's experiences, unhinged by ability. We believe in the importance of mental, physical and emotional wellness.
The people we serve are Warriors and it is our belief that their place in the community is both valuable and necessary. Because of their perseverance and strength, we endearingly dub our participants as Warriors.
