Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association (GLASA) strives to ‘Let No One Sit on the Sidelines’ and operates under a mission to promote and support the optimal development and well-being of youth, adults and military veterans who have a physical or visual disability through the provision of inclusive recreation, fitness and competitive sports activities. GLASA offers opportunities for empowerment through education, leadership and training in collaboration with community-based organizations. GLASA is still run by the same Executive Director, Cindy Housner, who founded the agency in 1999 in order to provide health and wellness programming to a segment of the population that was not being served in traditional physical activity and health promotion programs.
