What is PossAbilities?
PossAbilities is a FREE community outreach program developed by the Loma Linda University Health. Its goal is to offer disabled individuals who were born with or have suffered a permanent physical injury a sense of community and a healthy social network. Our mission is to provide new direction and hope through physical, social, and educational interaction with peers and their community. This free membership program is tailored to persons with physical disabilities such as limb amputation, stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, and others.
PossAbilities’ recreational and adaptive sports program is designed to provide various sports options for the recreational and elite-level athlete. Some sports are adaptive only while our integrated sports are open to both disabled and abled-bodied participants. We believe in building community through sports!
