Your donation will help us:

  • Continue to provide equipment, training and support to over 500 athletes with disabilities who participate in our eleven adaptive sport and wellness programs

  • Expand the range of our programs, including programs for Veterans with disabilities, and increase access to them throughout our region

  • Alleviate space constraints in our facility

  • Meet the increasing costs of adapted technology, which allows us to fit the unique needs of each participant with our innovatively designed equipment

  • Enable fun and healthy activities for hundreds of children and adults with disabilities in our area


We strive to improve our community where:

  • 70% of people with disabilities have no access to activities that promote health

  • 90% of women with a disability do not have access to recreation or sport

  • 70% of youth with a disability don't take part in any kind of physical activity

  • People with disabilities are twice as likely to be physically inactive (25% vs. 12%)

Positive Impacts

Playing adaptive sports increases the likelihood of full employment by 40%.

Access to adaptive recreation improves self-esteem and communities benefit when people with disabilities can more fully participate in sports and recreation.

One very important impact has been connecting and learning from others with disabilities. (Another) thing that has been very important to me is the social aspect and the lifelong friendships with fellow athletes and wonderful volunteers.
