The Sparkle Effect is an innovative, student-run program that helps students across the country create cheerleading and dance teams that include students with disabilities. Sarah founded The Sparkle Effect in 2008, and it continues to profoundly change the lives and outlooks of participating students with and without disabilities, replacing insecurity with confidence and joy. Generally, athletes are taught to perfect their skills, to conquer, to win. Sparkle Effect teams are not about perfection, they are about connection.
