Our Mission: Champions of Fond du Lac is committed to all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, realizing their goals of living, learning, working, and fully participating in the community.
We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, we will work tirelessly each day to contribute to the greater good.
Champions of Fond du Lac knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Our Organization realizes that by working together we can overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and much more economically.
It is my vision to bring to the Special Needs Community of Fond du Lac County a Service that is a fun, safe, and most importantly a healthy experience for everyone involved. Champions is all about doing what is right, it is all about Sportsmanship and being a part of a TEAM.
"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does"

Helping the Indivduals
At Champions of Fond du Lac, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts to help the Self-Advocate. Self-Advocacy is learning how to speak up for yourself, making their own decisions about their own life, learning how to get information so that they can understand things that are of interest to them, finding out who will support them in their journey, knowing your rights and responsibilities, problem solving, listening and learning, reaching out to others when they need help and friendship, and learning about self-determination.
