We provide funding for Adaptive Athletes from Ukraine to participate in yearly individual and team Cross Fit competitions in the UK organised for impaired athletes. Tournament participation allows war veterans with physical limitations to build a strong support network and restore quality of life and confidence.
Adaptive sport helps build camaraderie as well as the chance to connect through shared experiences. It helps grow confidence and improve motivation as well as the ability to deal with stress. It also helps to develop positive thinking and focusing on what someone can achieve instead of what they cannot.
“Taking part in tournaments is my conscious choice – it makes me feel more positive and helps to be better adjusted to the society”
Yuri Kozlovskyi, a serviceman of the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service
