Wheelchair and Adaptive Sports

Our Wheelchair & Adaptive Sports program is one of the largest of its kind in the country. An essential element of Mary Free Bed’s continuum of care, the Wheelchair & Adaptive Sports program serves more than 2,300 adults and children annually through competitive teams, clinics, classes and events.

Adaptive sports equipment is expensive. The cost for uniforms, transportation and tournament fees for travel-team athletes can be a barrier to participation. We’re thankful to the generous individuals, businesses and foundations who provide 95% of much-needed funding for Wheelchair & Adaptive Sports and are appreciative of your continued support.
