Ability in Action

As a leading provider of disability insurance, we’ve seen first-hand the positive impact sports can have on people. It’s why we’re helping those who have a will, find a way to achieve their goals by providing the adaptive equipment and support they need to make them happen.
“Adaptive sports equipment is an important investment that grows and sustains an athlete’s active sports lifestyle as well as their competitive opportunities.”

We’ve seen first-hand the power of adaptive sports as a catalyst for improved health and inclusion. It’s why we’re building on our 25-year partnership with Disabled Sports USA, and giving 20 of their chapters grants and adaptive sports equipment to benefit athletes of all ages.
