Our Mission: To meet the fitness, recreational, social, and employment needs of individuals with physical, developmental, and/or intellectual disabilities. We strive to turn dreams into realities through adaptive sports, traditional and alternative therapy methods, and therapeutic recreational activities designed to accommodate all participants. Our approach is to partner with and bring together multiple organizations for a larger, common goal of serving families with special needs.
Our Vision: To create exciting and educational programs and environments throughout the Central Florida region in order to serve individuals with disabilities in the areas of therapeutic intervention, fitness and recreational sports, and job training and employment.
