EndeaVor Adaptive Sports’ mission is to enable and broaden opportunity for individuals with diverse abilities to participate in community sports, recreational activities and educational programs. Our purpose is to foster inclusion, independence, increase confidence, and improve health in all its forms. Through collaboration with local business and community-focused organizations, active events, physical support of staff and volunteers, as well as through provision of equipment, we offer a unique avenue of participation in the multi-sport sector for individuals with disabilities.
To be able to engage, enable and empower people to reach their potential is our passion. Our goal is to leave no one on the sidelines. We envision individuals of diverse abiities challenging their personal limits, on and off the field or court. When we challenge ourselves and push limits, we frequently discover that we are stronger and more able than we thought. We find strength, determination and willpower to accomplish goals and connect with our passions.
Through EndeaVor, individuals with diverse abilities have an opportunity to engage in their community, challenge their limits and become empowered by their accomplishments. When individuals with disabilities participate in adaptive sport and the relationships that it nurtures, both the individual and the community discovers that empowerment is not merely a catch phrase but is an end result.
