Athletes Unlimited is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing social, recreational and athletic outlets to people with disabilities. Our guiding philosophy is that life is not intended to be a spectator sport. Everyone, regardless of ability, can benefit from participating in sports. It continues to be Athletes Unlimited’s primary goal to provide these opportunities to as many physically challenged individuals as possible.
We firmly believe that everyone should know that individuals with disabilities, regardless of their physical limitations, possess the same basic needs and desires as those without disabilities. Together we can strive to eliminate societal barriers that limit an individual’s potential to achieve.
Athletes Unlimited is a registered non-profit with the State of Michigan. Our goal is that 90% of our proceeds go to the organizations and individuals we support. Presently, due to a decrease in funding, 85% of our proceeds are going to those programs. Our main source of fundraising is through an annual golf outing event that is co-chaired by NBA Hall of Famer, George “Iceman” Gervin and Kris Draper of the Detroit Red Wings.
