Please note: I am a part of several of the below Facebook groups, though not all. I am listing these here as a resource for others and have tried to gather what information I could about the sites to share with you here. Several of the “about” blurbs I’ve added directly from the page’s about section and give all credit to the respective page owners. I am otherwise not affiliated with these groups or their owners and not responsible for what may be posted in them.
Adaptive Sports Iowa A wounded solder who enjoys a game of basketball with friends. A paraplegic athlete training for a cycling race. Or a disabled teen competing on her school’s swim team. The dream may be different for each of them, but the need is the same. The right equipment, facilities, and support can make all the difference when it comes to living an active life. Adaptive Sports Iowa believes every Iowan should have access to these resources. It’s a passion that began decades ago with our program director/co-founder as a child living with a blind father. A passion that continued when he volunteered as a ski instructor for a disabled ski program during college.
