About Beautiful People

bp-aboutBeautiful People is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization founded by Peter J Ladka in 2006, headquartered in Warwick, NY.

We are a community sports organization that enables joy, inspires hope, and fulfills dreams among children with disabilities and their families. We see that vision playing out in significant positive changes observed by parents as to their child’s socialization, self-esteem, coordination, agility and mobility.

Our Mission

The mission of Beautiful People is to build bridges between children with disabilities and their families and the broader community of Orange County by providing adaptive sports for children and young adults, age 5 and up.

Who’s On First?

The first endeavor of Beautiful People began in 2007 with baseball partnered with Miracle League, a national organization that has been providing baseball for children with disabilities since 2000. Our baseball program is the Miracle League of Orange County. For more about Miracle League baseball and how to register as a player or volunteer, click here.

Our Goals

Ongoing, we are recruiting for upcoming seasons of baseball, soccer and basketball. Children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities, ages 5 and up are eligible to play.

Youth and adult volunteers are needed to “buddy” pair up one on one for as much help as is required for each player. For complete information contact us at 845-986-5944 or Included in our growth goals, we strive to raise awareness and funds to continue to expand Beautiful People programs as we are led to other sports such as track and field, swimming, flag football, and ice hockey.
