Why We Play and Yoocan team up

Better together!

FanSided is proud to announce a new partnership between our Why We Play initiative and Yoocan! Our goal is to help share more inspiring stories of the power of sports.

Since July 2021, Why We Playhas been FanSided’s home for stories about the power of sports: they bring us together, help us overcome obstacles, and make positive change that reaches everyone. We have used this platform to help champion the mission of inclusion and accessibility and we’re excited to announce a new partnership to that end. Starting Feb. 1, 2023, Why We Play will begin sharing stories from Yoocan — a global collaborative community where people with disabilities share experiences and knowledge — so that no one feels alone.

Through their website, Yoocan allows people from around the world to sharestories, tips, and product recommendations, all of which are searchableand accessible for anyone looking for first-hand information about thriving with a disability. Yoocan was founded in 2015 by Moshe Gaon his brother Yoav Gaon and their partner Dror Kalisky. Yoav’s son Erez, was born in 2008 with a rare disease and complex cognitive and physical disabilities. In Moshe’s words: “This was the beginning of an emotionally challenging journey for our family. It brought us together in many ways, but it was hard as we needed to adjust to a new way of living. Like Erez, there are over 1 billion people in the world living with some kind of cognitive or physical disability, striving to live a better, inclusive life, and fulfill their dreams. There are solutions and opportunities around the world that can help, so no one feels alone in their search for relevant advice and a more inclusive life. That is why we created Yoocan!”

Stories from Yoocan involving athletes and sports will be shared on FanSided’s Why We Play category weekly, helping celebrate those who are overcoming obstacles in their own lives and sharing the lessons they’ve learned with a wider audience.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
