The LEAPlete Foundation’s mission is to provide enriched athletic opportunities, programs and services to children and adults with special needs that support, encourage and emphasize inclusion and acceptance within the community. We are creating a movement in which we harness and empower the potential of individuals with special needs while educating and bringing awareness to our communities. Through our FUSION Athletic Programs and our Athlete Empowerment Initiative, we are able to provide numerous athletic opportunities that improve physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioral and social skills, which lead to a more active, healthy lifestyle that will carry on long after their involvement in our program. Beyond that, we strive to open the doors to more activities and events that build life skills and experiences and that many individuals with special needs miss out on or secluded from. The LEAPlete Foundation is challenging the definition of the modern-day champion and laying the foundation for an environment where individuals with special needs can learn, develop and thrive alongside anyone.
