Racing For Awareness
The Impossible Dream competes in highly competitive international and domestic races with mixed ability crews to bring awareness of her mission and open people’s minds to the capabilities of people with disabilities.
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
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
