EveryBody Healthy Body met with Lakeshore Foundation in Birmingham Alabama to discuss the development of an adapted sports campus with Ability First Sports.

Kerri Vanderbom from the Chico area arranged many of the meetings and gave an extensive tour of facilities and dorms/cottages. Lakeshore Foundation sits on a 45-acre campus that includes a medical center renown to provide medical care to people with disabilities. It has since sold its medical center piece, leases those buildings and in 2001, built a sports & recreation center for adapted sports, obtaining the designation as a Paralympic Training Site. It is home to the USA Wheelchair Rugby Team and hosts multiple tournaments and camps for wheelchair basketball, power soccer, tennis, Goal Ball, swimming, shooting, archery and some track sports.

EveryBody Healthy Body is so grateful to be able to tour these facilities, and this truly gave EBHB the knowledge  to implement a sports and active lifestyle complex that is similar in Chico.

Thank you to Kerri Vanderbom for taking us around and giving us the tour!
