Partner Organizations

GRIT works closely with organizations around the world to integrate the GRIT Freedom Chair into their programming. 

GRIT works closely with organizations around the world to integrate the Freedom Chair into their programming. Groups of all shapes, sizes, and missions have purchased Freedom Chairs to broaden their accessible offerings.

We love working with partners who make that true accessibility a reality, through adaptive hiking programs, trailside events, obstacle course races, camps, or simply taking the steps to make their pre-existing offerings accessible to a larger population.
