To provide adaptive recreation, inclusion education, and community outreach to individuals with disabilities.
Profound Adventures founders have all pursued careers in recreation working with individuals with disabilities. Each of them started with a dream to bring recreation programming to a population often underserved in the Omaha community. This is their why:
“I’ve known that I belong in the world of adaptive sports and want to carry that world over into the community I call home” -Tabby
“This organization is my dream becoming a reality” -Jamie
“My fire comes from creating a sense of belonging where participants create their own identity as an active contributing part of the community.” -Kaleigh
