Welcome to Sports 4 All! Our mission is turning disabilities into abilities through sports and healthy activities.
Hike 4 HEALTH
Hike 4 HEALTH: Sports 4 All is hosting a 3 mile hike at Edwin Warner Park Greenway. This will be our 1st ever HIKE 4 HEALTH! Sports 4 All is anorganization that supports and serves people with disabilities; we need your help to make our event successful so that we can continue to serve people in need.
Team and individual registration is available. The hike is free; however, we encourage each person to raise $50. If you raise at least $25, you will receive a free HIKE 4 HEALTH t-shirt. We will have local artists playing live music and plenty of food! This is a great way to spend time with your friends and family in a healthy, happy environment.

November - Elliot Timmons
Elliot Timmons is a member of the Friends of Metro Parks Disabilities Program. We have seen Elliot progressively improve throughout Project HEALTH classes. Elliot leads by example and is encouraging to his peers. Not only has Elliot's participation in Project HEALTH class improved, but also his cardiovascular endurance. In the last year, Elliot has lost 23 pounds and has increased his speed by 1.6 seconds during the Up & Go fitness test. Some of his favorite Project HEALTH activities are jogging/walking on the track and playing Castle Ball. We look forward to seeing Elliot in Project HEALTH because he always has a smile and positive attitude.
