Be Radical in Thought & Design
In order for some individuals with disabilities to participate in certain recreation/athletic activities, they may need an adaptation.  These adaptations may be as simple as velcro attached to a glove and kayak paddle so they can successfully hold on to the paddle to a fully customized sit ski and rifle for biathlon.
At the Blind Endeavors Foundation, we work with those with disabilities to get them the gear they need to participate in adaptive athletics and recreation.
We also work to develop new technologies to make the world more accessible so people with disabilities can be more independent.
