The Ethan Foundation
The Ethan Foundation’s mission is to promote a proactive, healthy lifestyle for the youth of Bowling Green, Ky., and surrounding areas. This way, healthy habits are formed at an early age and taken all the way into adulthood. The Ethan Foundation recognizes the lack of exercise activities designed for and promoted toward adaptive athletes in the south central Kentucky region. As a nonprofit organization already implementing long-term CrossFit and other exercise programming, The Ethan Foundation will expand its reach to effectively serve adaptive athletes and their support networks. The Ethan Foundation will grow its current CrossFit Kids and CrossFit Teens offerings to be more accessible to those individuals with paralysis, amputation, or any other condition or disability that does not allow for traditional range of motion. This project will be successful through the purchase of adaptive equipment, effective marketing, and additional professional development for coaches.
