How You Can Help

There are volunteer opportunities for individuals or groups, whether it's a few hours per week, once a month or once a year. See our Blog With It page for volunteer opportunities.
Make A Donation
Roll With It compiles an annual "wish list" of specific items needed for our adapted sports programs, including recreation equipment, uniforms, facility time, travel, and advertising. Contributions of new and slightly used items are welcome.
Donate A Wheelchair
Recycle that old chair by giving to RWI to allow for individuals in need a chance to play sports and for wheelchair athletic presentations and demonstrations.

If you work for the federal or state government, or your workplace participates in a United Way campaign, designate part of your contribution to RWI or even become a sponsor.
Invest In The Future
Establish a permanent legacy for wheelchair and adapted sports in Minnesota through the RWI program. There are a limited number of wheelchair teams in MN and neighboring states, requiring some families to travel long distances just to attend a team practice. Roll With It wants to create more teams around the state to give everyone the chance to play.
