Thank You for Supporting Mad Fitness September Charity XMO – Extreme Mobility Camps

Extreme Mobility Camps (XMO) would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who participated in a charity class in September at Mad Fitness SB! You were able to help us raise over $700 this month!

XMO provides a unique opportunity for blind and visually impaired youth in America to be challenged, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential. It is our belief that the challenge by choice extreme action sports increases self-awareness and self-confidence. We challenge blind individuals with action sports, support them in an encouraging environment, and empower them to live more fulfilled lives.

XMO believes that individuals with disabilities are being limited from reaching their full potential due to the environment they are raised in. With an unemployment rate of 70%, 86% living off of supplemental security income, and a depression rate twice as high as “able-bodied” individuals, Extreme Mobility Camps uses extreme action sports to help youth with disabilities reach their full potential in life.

The money raised this month at Mad Fitness will go towards providing an XMO Athlete with lodging, meals, equipment, transportation, and lifelong friendships for our week long XMO Winter Camp this February 2018. At our Winter Camp in Colorado the athletes will participate in Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, and much more including motivational programs to help empower them to reach their full potential during their week of camp.

XMO is continuing to grow and reach more of the blind population in the US and Canada each year. We are always open to new athletes and volunteers to help run our camps every winter and summer. If you or someone you know would like to get involved with Extreme Mobility Camps visit our website at xmocamps.org.
