About the Bridge
At The Bridge, our mission is to increase awareness and promote opportunities for individuals to participate in adaptive sports and recreation in order to improve their quality of life.

We aim to be a bridge from the hospital to the community, being sedentary to active, unequipped to fully fitted, and so on for individuals with disabilities. We break down barriers to accessing sport and recreation in three primary ways:                        

  1. In conjunction with local and national organizations, we host regular “Try-It” events that allow people to try things like adaptive skiing or adaptive mountain biking at no cost and low commitment. 
  2. We have a bank of used adaptive sports equipment that we loan out to allow athletes to try a sport before spending thousands of dollars on purchasing their own equipment.
  3. We train the community and other providers in adaptive sports to increase the network of people comfortable working with individuals with disabilities.

Where do we need support? Here are just a few examples:

  1. Funding to purchase adaptive mountain bikes to officially bring adaptive mountain biking to Cincinnati.
  2. Funding to support the purchase of handcycles to support training and competing in the Flying Pig.
  3. Facility space to be able to store, test, and service adaptive sports equipment.
  4. Funding for purchasing sports wheelchair parts such as wheelchair wheels, axles, and cushions to increase our loanable inventory.      

Some examples of how your money might be used:

$25 - 2 Adaptive Crossfit Lessons

$50 - Flying Pig Handcycling Division Registration Fee

$75 - New pair of wheelchair tires

$100 - 1.5 hour adaptive ski lesson at Perfect North Slopes

$300 - Help the Bridge to continue delivering impactful adaptive experiences to people of all abilities!

One of our core beliefs is that this work doesn't have to be easy, it just has to be possible. You can see details about our expansion and accomplishments in 2023 right here in our annual impact report. The Bridge plans to build on our success to continue providing and growing a welcoming community for athletes with disabilities.

Thanks again for your interest and consideration. We look forward to making it possible with you and your support soon!
