Testimonial

As Brenden’s GiGi, Grandma, it means a lot to bring Brenden to a place where he is safe, accepted and truly cared about. Sportable is that place. We joined Sportable in 2018 when Brenden was 3 years old. Brenden, who has spina bifida and uses a wheelchair, loves swimming with Sportable. It gives him the opportunity to be active and participate in activities like other children his age. We have seen his confidence and endurance grow as he continues to participate in swimming. Every week he is excited to attend. As his family we are glad there are other adaptive sports he can try as well like Sportable basketball, which he also enjoys. Being a member means he doesn’t have to feel isolated and can continue to be active into adulthood. Which will mean an emotionally and physically healthy Brenden!
