Mission Statement

Move United’s mission is to provide national leadership and opportunities for individuals with disabilities to develop independence, confidence, and fitness through participation in community sports, recreation and educational programs. Every day, we work hard to pursue our vision that "every person, regardless of ability, has an equal opportunity to participate in sports and recreation in their community."

Description

Since 1967, Move United has focused on one goal: To improve the lives of wounded warriors, youth and adults with disabilities by providing sports and recreation opportunities.

Disabilities include those with visual impairments, amputations, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, head injury, cerebral palsy, other neuromuscular/orthopedic conditions, autism and related intellectual disabilities.

These sports opportunities transform the people we serve, highlighting the potential in each of us, embodied in our motto: "If I can do this, I can do anything!"

Our unique structure as a community-based chapter network allows Move United to reach people across the country, through a grassroots approach that supports local chapters in identifying the needs of the communities they serve.

Each year through our nationwide network, we serve over 60,000 youth, wounded warriors and adults through a nationwide network of over 120 community-based chapters in more than 40 states nationwide. Over 50 different sports are offered, including alpine and Nordic skiing, snowboarding, biathlon, kayaking, water skiing, sailing, scuba, surfing, rafting, outrigger canoeing, fishing, hiking, golf, athletics, archery, cycling, running/wheeling, rock climbing, equestrian and others.
