The primary purpose of this festival is to promote physical activity and sports for people of all ages, with any disability, injury, or illness.The Ability Sports & Education Festival also works towards raising awareness about various disability sports and physical activity options available in the Inland Empire. It also provides service-learning opportunities for students to not only volunteer their time, but also learn how to create and adapt programs for people with disabilities. This event is a free opportunity for people of ALL ages and ALL forms of disabilities to come together to learn and have fun.

Sports & Education Festival
October 3rd, 2020
California State University, San Bernardino | 5500 University Parkway, San Bernardino, CA 92407
We believe in showing the importance of health and physical activity, increasing quality of life and providing learning opportunities while raising awareness for people living with disabilities in our community. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to realize a disability is not an inability. We believe in creating that moment, that instance of clarity to not just think anything is possible…. But to know it.
