Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys Donates Money and Becomes a Major Contributor To The YMCA Challenger Program

On March 16, 2010, Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys presented a donation of money to the YMCA Challenger Program, becoming a major contributor to the organization. Challenger is for boys and girls 5-30 years old, with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities. The fundamental goal of the Challenger program is to give everyone a chance to participate regardless of their limitation. 

Athletes with a wide variety of disabilities, Autism, Asperger's, Cerebral Palsy, Down Symdrome, spinal injuries, etc., are placed on teams with peers and coached by volunteers.

Challenger is about more than playing a game. It's about making new friends, building self-esteem and being part of a team. 

To help athletes, they use a "buddy" system and pair each player with a volunteer that is at least 9 years of age or older. Participants receive a team shirt and personal award for their participation. Attorney James Roswold's oldest of three children is 9 this year and the wheels are in motion for father and daughter to volunteer for the YMCA Challenger program in the baseball league this summer!

Attorney James Roswold is an avid athlete, participating in endurance sports including triathlons and running races across the community to help raise money for good causes and when not at home or work, outside running or on his bike, he can often be found at one of the local YMCA's in the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan area. He also grew up witness to the daily pain and suffering of a sibling who was severely injured disabled due to medical malpractice, and Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys's contribution to the YMCA Challenger Program is consistent with his strong desire that every child be given the chance to participate regardless of his or her limitation.

The goal of the YMCA Challenger program is also perfectly compatible with the goal of Roswold Foundation for Injured Children (RFFIC), which was created in 2009 by James Roswold and associate attorney Heather Lottmann, who is the mother of two young children and is also passionate about helping other children. RFFIC is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to children struggling with the lifelong and devastating affects of a serious injury and assisting families who are struggling with the difficulties of raising seriously injured children.


RFFIC's vision is to provide a life of hope, social interaction, education, and happiness for children suffering from severe injuries and their families. The mission is to make a difference in the lives of injured children in the Kansas City community by assisting them in every way possible to reach their greatest potential and to provide children and their families with support on the road to recovery.
