Adaptive Training Foundation
Mizzen + Main is proud to sponsor the Adaptive Training Foundation (ATF) and its efforts to provide rehabilitating, adaptive performance training to veterans and individuals who have suffered life-altering injuries
The Adaptive Training Foundation was founded by former NFL player David Vobora in 2014 after he had an impactful experience training Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the US Army. Ever since then, ATF has passionately worked to bridge the gap between functional rehabilitation and adapted sport.
Each year, the Adaptive Training Foundation welcomes 4 different classes of adaptive athletes to participate in a 9 week course developed to restore lives and empower individuals.
Learn how Mizzen + Main partners with ATF
Mizzen + Main proudly sponsors one athlete per ATF class. Twice per week we have a representative of our team on site at the ATF training facilities providing support to both the athletes and instructors.
"Through ATF’s programs, athletes are brought into a community that envelopes courage, hope, and the attitude to never settle despite what life has thrown their way. I’m proud to be a small part of ATF’s mission to impact lives." - Tim W., Mizzen + Main Office Manager
Meet Tyler, Mizzen + Main’s sponsored athlete from ATF’s 16th adaptive athlete class.
After spinal and musculoskeletal trauma sustained from a skydiving accident, Tyler lost both of his legs through amputation. But after a life full of athletic endeavors and a career of skydiving and snowboarding sponsorships, he would not let his bilateral below knee amputation slow him down. ATF has helped Tyler accelerate his growth towards getting back into the sky and snow.
Everyday we become stronger together.
