The Airpower Foundation was proud to help sponsor a special trip to Arizona with the Adaptive Training Foundation and a group of their warrior athletes. Thanks to the amazing support from our sponsors and partners, Envoy and American Airlines, a donated chartered aircraft was provided with an all volunteer flight crew, to fly the group to Arizona. The Adaptive Training Foundation is opening their first satellite facility in partnership with Arizona State University with the renovation of a gym on campus to facilitate adaptive training resources for veterans in the area, replicating the amazing success of their Dallas location started by ATF founder, Dave Vabora.
About the ATF & ASU Partnership:
‘Through a community collaboration with Adaptive Training Foundation, Arizona State University launched DevilsAdapt, an initiative that aims to provide resources and opportunities in recreational and competitive adaptive sports.
A kickoff event presented Friday, April 20, on the Sun Devil Fitness Complex fields at ASU’s Tempe campus highlighted fitness and a commitment to inclusion while providing adaptive athletes the opportunity to shine. Teams comprised of adaptive athletes, Sun Devil student-athletes, ASU and ATF staff competed in an obstacle course race designed to challenge, test resilience, strength and stamina while building community among the athletes.’
The Airpower Foundation is proud to partner with the Adaptive Training Foundation, and we look forward to working on many more initiatives together in the future.
The weekend also included base visits with the 161st Air Refueling Wing, and at Luke Air Force Base, home of the F35 training program. We thank and salute the generous hospitality of all the Airmen at the bases who went out of their way to make our visits extra special.
The assistance we are able to provide to programs such as the ATF is made possible thanks to the amazing support of our annual fundraiser, American Airlines Sky Ball, In Support of the Airpower Foundation.
