Teenage wheelchair rugby player looks at opponent

Be a game changer.

For sixteen-year-old Zion Redington, Lakeshore is a game changer. A natural athlete, Zion began playing wheelchair basketball at a young age near his Franklin, Tennessee home. But it was at Lakeshore where he was introduced to wheelchair rugby, a sport that would win his heart and kickstart a new goal.

Lakeshore is one of a kind. Nowhere else can a young athlete participate in such a wide range of adapted sports, receive instruction from expert coaches, set Paralympic-level goals, and train in a world-class facility just a court away from the very role models who inspire their dream.

So, after years of long drives to Lakeshore, the Redingtons made the decision to relocate to Birmingham.

Now, Zion has three USA Wheelchair Rugby developmental camps under his belt, has earned the nickname “Zion the Lion” from national team veterans and even received a shoutout from Team USA Co-Captain Chuck Aoki on Instagram.

Your generous gifts and support are changing the game – and life – for Zion and dozens more athletes who are pursuing their goals.
