Courage Center Duluth offers year-round recreational and competitive sports programs for youth, adults and families in northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin. These activities enhance independence, improve self-confidence and encourage an active, healthy lifestyle for youth and adults with physical disabilities, and youth on the autism spectrum. Our programs would not be possible without the generous time and talents of volunteers!
