The Hanger Charitable Foundation announced it has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Angel City Games, a multi-sport competition for people with physical disabilities.
This year’s Angel City Games were held June 19-20 at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), according to a press release.
The Angel City Games were founded by Clayton Frech and Bahar Soomekh, the parents of 10-year-old Hanger Clinic patient, Ezra Frech.
“The goals of the Angel City Games align with our foundation’s mission of advancing our communities and empowering people with physical challenges to live life fully,” Jennifer Bittner, president of Hanger Charitable Foundation, said in the press release. “Over the years, we have had the pleasure of watching Ezra grow and thrive at numerous sports. It is clear to see how competing in athletics has made a tremendous positive impact in his life, and we are happy to support this new event that provides even more opportunity for adaptive athletics.”
“We are so appreciative of the generous grant from the Hanger Charitable Foundation,” Clayton Frech said in the release. “Their contribution helps ensure the financial viability of our event and also validates our hard work. It gives our team a major morale boost to know our mission and efforts are recognized and valued by such a respected organization as the Hanger Charitable Foundation.”
