What we aim to solve

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to provide:

- Free online streaming classes nationwide to assist all abilities through adaptive fitness education and training.
- Scholarships for one on one, in-person training and designing a plan that will be implemented based on goals set forth by the adaptive fitness trainer and the participant.
- Gifting adaptive fitness equipment to people in need.

We have partnered with local, DPI Adaptive Fitness to execute streaming classes and one on one scholarships. Through collaboration with other organizations and community involvement, we hope to bring new ideas and awareness to adaptive fitness.

By hosting and sponsoring fundraising events and applying for appropriate grants, the AFL is confident to be able to provide funding for scholarship opportunities for each of the programs we offer.

The AFL was officially formed in April of 2020, since this time we have obtained all necessary documentation for our 501 c3 exempt status, we have also obtained our VA State registration information. The AFL launched to the public on 7/17/2020 and was very well received. AFL has initiated content across multiple social media platforms, launched our first t-shirt campaign, and have released information on our first live/virtual public fundraiser. The Fundraiser will be a sip and bid wine tasting event, we will utilize a silent auction where we will have participants bid on art, craft, and other items that have been donated by local artists, and more.
In addition, we have established several great connections with local businesses that we plan to partner with to better serve our community.
