The primary purpose of the Ability Sports & Education 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.
The Ability Sports & Education Festival started at California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) and is held annually in October. The 12th annual CSUSB Ability Sports & Education Festival will be held at Cal State San Bernardino on Saturday, Oct. 6th from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (on-site registration starts at 8 a.m.). The Ability Sports & Education Festival is FREE for ANYONE with any type of disability and ANY age. Last year, we had 900 participants ages 8 months to 84 years old. This year, we expect to have over 1000 participants including 100 veterans at this FREE festival.
