Looking Beyond is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness and enriching the lives of children and young adults with special needs. We support various organizations, programs and services through events and fundraising opportunities. Our goal is to impact as many children and families with a range of special needs as possible.

Soaring Spirit Award

Rion Paige is a beautiful and talented singer who captured the heart of America when she became one of the finalists on the hit TV show the X Factor. Although living with a rare condition called AMC (arthrogryposis multiplex congenita) that affects the muscles and joints, and is blind in one eye, she has not let it prevent her from living her dreams! She embodies the "soaring spirit" we admire so much—rising above difficulties and living with joy.

Upcoming Event

Join us September 13th, 2014 at Unici Casa for the Inaugural Looking Beyond Next Generation Event. We will honor Nick Ekbatani as the inaugural honoree. Nick personifies the human spirit’s capacity. In 2012, he lost his left leg when a taxi driver made an unfortunate illegal left turn. Doctors did not believe he would make it. But, not only did Nick make it, he survived with a new sense of purpose: to inspire life in those around him.
