WHY WE EXIST.
EVEN THOUGH WE SHOULDN’T HAVE TO.
Stigma, judgement, invisibility. Persons with disabilities have faced these for centuries. And yet, in this most modern of ages, the exclusion of persons with disabilities from mainstream life still comes as news to many people. Fortunately, this story can be rewritten. Especially if more allies like you join us in our journey to bring lasting change in the form of disability inclusion. In the form of a global community that is at once emboldened, energetic, and empathetic. Because that is the simple philosophy at the heart of Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation: strength lies in community.
And what better way to encourage this sense of community than sport! After all, sport has the power to bring people together – no matter their age, race, religion, or physical ability. Sport encourages partnerships. It creates opportunities for bonds between persons with and without disabilities. Sport creates a level playing field – literally and figuratively – for everyone in the world. Sport is not a one-and-done event. It is an experience that stays with you forever.
That is the reason ABBF chooses to run marathons and to scuba dive. To trek and to paraglide. And summit mountain peaks, too. But sport isn’t all we do. After all, we’re not an adventure sports company! Sport is simply our gateway to a world of inclusion. A world where people empower people, and discover the compassionate human beings within themselves. A world where we all encourage each other to fight our own battles, conquer our own demons. A world where openness, sensitivity, and compassion come together to ensure that no one is left behind. Ever.
Come, join us at our next experience as an individual ally or as a corporate team. Or learn how you can volunteer with us or donate to the cause. It’ll help us take many more persons with disability one step closer to being included, being heard, even being employed.
