November 24, 2014 : No Limits Athletics Selected for Fairfield Leadership Class
- Cheri Russo
Communications and Marketing Manager
 
Lancaster – An organization started by two former Ohio University Lancaster | Pickerington students has been selected to be part of the Fairfield Leadership class.  No Limits Athletics is run by Cody Sarensen and Rachel Berens.  The organization holds athletic camps in basketball and tennis for children with and without disabilities.
 
“This is a wonderful opportunity for us,” said Sarensen.  “We’re excited to see what happens next.”
 
Fairfield Leadership is a nine-month program of the Lancaster Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce which is designed to build community leaders.  Students in the class are partnered with a local agency and given the task of developing a community project that aids in the fulfillment of the agency’s mission and organizational goals. Sarensen and Berens presented information about No Limits Athletics to the class on Friday. 
 
“We told them about the challenges we face moving forward,” said Sarensen.  “We’d like to add more sports, we’d also like to apply for non-profit status.  So, we’ll see what the students in Fairfield Leadership decide to work on with us.”
 
Berens started her tennis camp in 2010.  Sarensen started the basketball camp in 2011.  In 2014, the two merged their camps under one umbrella called No Limits Athletics.
 
“Cody has won many awards in the community for his work with the basketball camp.  Rachel won the Chamber of Commerce Emerging Athena award this year,” said Chamber of Commerce President Travis Markwood. “They are doing great things in the community, so we thought No Limits would be a great organization to work with through the leadership class.”
 
The Fairfield Leadership class meets once a month from September through April.  The goal of the program is to inspire students to think in new ways and bring about new perspectives while utilizing the resources within the community to make Lancaster and Fairfield County a better place to live and an outstanding place to do business.
