Gateway Special Recreation Association (SRA) promotes the full participation of people with disabilities in meaningful activities that maximize their health, well-being, and quality of life. Holt began participating with Gateway SRA in 2012 as an athlete in our Gators program and training and competing with Special Olympics Illinois. He loves playing basketball, volleyball, soccer, and softball and competes in golf and track and field.

As Holt began forming friendships with his teammates, he was invited to other Gateway SRA social activities. Once in-person programming resumed, Holt registered for just about everything! He tried bocce for the first time as well as his first social club and dance. He has made so many friends in the past year by engaging in his community in new ways. Recently, Gateway SRA hosted the annual Spring Formal, and Holt attended for the very first time. He had a blast!

Recreational programs have boosted Holt’s social skills and self-confidence. He has started new hobbies, made new friends, and achieved remarkable athletic milestones!

No matter a person’s strengths, hopes, and challenges, Gateway SRA has a program that can help them live a happier and healthier life. Learn more about programming and how you can register for them at
