Winter at Shake-A-Leg

When not sailing the East Coast, the Impossible Dream is based at Shake-A-Leg Miami, one of the most accessible community boating centers in the world. From this base, the Impossible Dream introduces people with disabilities, their families, and others to the joy of sailing and to assist people with disabilities to improve their quality of life

Rehabilitation Partners

The Impossible Dream also partners with the country’s leading rehabilitation hospitals, disability advocacy groups, and spinal cord injury research institutions to inspire individuals with disabilities and to bring awareness to accessible design.

100% of every donation helps provides the opportunity to sail onboard the Impossible Dream to those who are marginalized from society

It is hard to describe the impact of working with the Impossible Dream. So many people’s horizons (including my own) have been permanently expanded by this amazing opportunity.
