The Ability Center has recruited an experienced and talented group of business, industry, and disability experts to ensure its success.
The Ability Center is not just about recreation, sports and fitness, it’s also about improving the lives of the individuals we have the privilege of serving through community and inclusion. The Ability Center will be life-changing, and having Milwaukee lead the way will be amazing for our community.

As an amputee myself, I always encourage others to “try what you used to do and see how normal it feels.” They’re often surprised. One barrier to this is not having a place to exercise and be physically active where they can feel comfortable. That’s why we need The Ability Center.
Fitness is something that most of society takes for granted, but it truly comes at a great monetary cost to the disabled population. We hope to change that by building a facility without the usual physical, social and emotional barriers that exist in conventional fitness facilities.

I became a paraplegic at age 3, and have been involved in wheelchair sports for 28 years, including playing for the U.S.A. Basketball Team since 1998. The Ability Center is important because it will provide a facility for people of ALL abilities to participate at a level of their choice to become physically better and healthier.
