Metro Area Community Empowerment
The Metro Area Community Empowerment Foundation (MACE) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization created to assist individuals with Spinal cord injuries (SCI) and provide youth character building through mentorship, community involvement, and goal formation. We help people with (SCI) reach their maximum level of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual function through fitness and sports. The Rollin Tigers Wheelchair Sports and Recreation Team is one of the Metro Area Community Empowerment Foundation (MACE) programs for people with (SCI).
MACE wants to assist people with spinal cord injuries in becoming competitors in wheelchair sports. Our goal is to promote physical fitness programs and specific sports training. MACE offers one-on-one personal approach to inform and motivate our clients in reaching their individual physical fitness and life goals.
MACE programs are designed to motivate clients to become healthier and enhance their overall lifestyle. We offer wheelchair sports and activities to include wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, wheelchair softball, wheelchair golf, and many more sport activities. A personal trainer and coach are available to help clients get better at their specific sports or their personal physical fitness goals.
