Statement of Purpose
Sportable believes that no one should be left on the side lines. Unfortunately most people with physical or visual disabilities don’t have the chance to participate in regular sports activities.
Sportable helps to remove the barriers that often exist to participation, helping to decrease social isolation. Research proves daily physical activity raises self-esteem, helps individuals develop peer relationships, increases achievement/independence, enhances overall health and improves quality of life.
Transform the life of every athlete with a physical disability in Central Virginia.
Over the course of the next three years, Sportable has identified key areas to address our key goals of serving more athletes and continuing to improve the quality of our programming, as well as strategies to increase awareness about the abilities of the unique population we serve. We hope that our outreach in the community can lead to lasting changes in people’s perceptions and overall accessibility of events and facilities to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to lead a healthy, active lifestyle in Greater Richmond.
