ABOUT US

Participation in sports improves the mental and physical well-being of all who participate. Providing adapted sports opportunities for people with a physical disability is paramount for their overall well-being, developing independence, and creating an inclusive-equitable society. We strive to help athletes find their success and help them accomplish their goals by creating a community of athletes who encourage each other to do their best.

Outdoors for all?

America’s public lands are intended for everyone, regardless of their physical ability or lack thereof. But despite the ADA and nationwide efforts from both state and federal agencies to expand access to people with disabilities, the reality is that many trails, like in this video are not inclusive to all – yet.
