“Dig deep & you can accomplish anything.” – Chris Kaag


The mission of the IM ABLE Foundation is simple. We remove obstacles that keep people with challenges on the sidelines, providing them access to programs and equipment tailored to their needs and a community of all abilities to support them. 


Adaptive Equipment Grants

IM ABLE Grants are awarded to disabled individuals, providing hand-cycles and other adaptive athletic gear, as well as instructional training programs for those in need.

Disability Advocacy

Founder Chris Kaag does speaking engagements to show that regardless of his wheelchair he maintains an active and fulfilling life. Handcycling, working out at his gym, Corps Fitness, and ORHC- Offroad Handcycling are all examples of how he is doing what he promotes…getting up and moving.  Whether disabled or able-bodied, we all have challenges but it is the goal of the IM ABLE Foundation to demonstrate that they don’t have to be limiting factors. By getting out in the community and showing people of all abilities the potential to lead an active lifestyle, it is our hope that others will be inspired to make positive changes.

Chris is available for leadership development, team building and speaking engagements. For more information:
