For more than three decades, Lakeshore Foundation who have physically disabling conditions. Our goal is to help each person live a more active, healthy and independent life through physical activity, sports, recreation and research.  We are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in a person's life.

We are grateful that we can do this work in a completely accessible 126,000 square foot facility that includes an aquatics center, fitness center, and indoor track, three sports courts, and much more.  Our caring, giving staff is expertly trained in adaptive fitness, sport and recreation.

So much has been said about the impact of physical activity for a person's health and wellbeing. We know first-hand that for a person with a physical disability, it is even more important. Whether it is a child born with spina bifida, a person paralyzed from an accident, or an individual with a chronic health condition such as multiple sclerosis, we are here to encourage our members to stay healthy through physical activity.

A member might choose to join a wheelchair sports team, enjoy one of the many aquatic classes, or work out in our adaptive fitness area. Or, they may see the possibilities of "going for the gold" by training and competing toward a dream to become a Paralymip athlete. We are grateful that Lakeshore is a place of possibilities.

In addition, we are proud to provide "Lima Foxtrot" program for severely injured U.S. armed forces, veterans and their family members.  Participation in our specially designed sports and recreation camps has helped many of our military and their families regain healthy, active lives together.

In partnership with University of Alabama at Birmingham, Lakeshore is also on the cutting edge of research aimed at creating the most effective health and wellness programs  for people with disabilities. 

Finally, we a grateful for the generous community support that enables us to help the people we serve.  Thank you for considering a gift to Lakeshore.
