It boils down to access.  Access to the transformative, healing powers of the outdoors.  It is not a disability that our athletes overcome, but the barriers to the outdoors placed in their way.

At Oregon Adaptive Sports, we are working to help individuals with disabilities breakdown these barriers.  OAS' programs, equipment, advocacy, training, and grants are all working together to make the outdoors more inclusive to individuals with disabilities.

Your support helps to create, and sustain, critical access to the outdoors for individuals with disabilities.

Where barriers persist, our work begins.

Please consider supporting our efforts us by making a Giving Tuesday contribution.  Each and every dollar makes a significant impact on our mission, the hundreds of individuals we directly serve in programs each year, and countless more who are joining us in the effort to create more equality in the outdoor recreation industry.

  • OAS' training program that provides thousands of hours of training each year to community members who go on to be OAS volunteers and informed and active members of society fostering more inclusion within and beyond OAS' programs.
