LIGHT UP TO LIVE PROUDLY SUPPORTS ADAPTIVE TRAINING FOUNDATION
The Adaptive Training Foundation is an amazing 501-c3 charitable organization based in Carrollton, TX that we have supported since our founding in 2017. Its purpose is to provide access and inclusion to individuals living with physical or traumatic impairments by empowering them through exercise and community. Light Up to Live provides Polychromatic Light Therapy Systems to graduates of the ATF program who may need it for chronic pain management. Military veteran and civilian graduates of the program may apply online to request a system. Applications are reviewed and systems approved by a Review Committee.
“In January of 2014, David Vobora, a 5-year veteran of the NFL, met US Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, a quadruple amputee. David opened up his personal gym to Travis, offering his training expertise. The pair started working out together, customizing and adapting to the unique challenges posed by Travis’ injuries. Through working with Travis and engaging the veteran community, David developed a passion for helping those with life-altering injuries find life-fulfilling adaptive performance training. David realized that, while there are many excellent rehabilitation programs as well as adaptive/Paralympic sports organizations, none existed to bridge the gap from basic functional rehabilitation to adapted sport. Adaptive Training Foundation (ATF) was conceived to fill this void. He continued helping adaptive athletes create sustainable lifestyle changes over the next six months, and by September of 2014, Adaptive Training Foundation had received its 501(c)3 status to allow outside support for these ambitious athletes. To this day, ATF is committed to keeping its services to adaptive athletes 100% free of charge, and relies on the generosity of its supporters to not only restore lives, but empower them through movement.” – Learn more at https://www.adaptivetrainingfoundation.org/
