Leep has helped individuals with intellectual disabilities be active in sporting activities as well as everyday leisure activities. The smies on the participant's face speaks volumes at every event I've helped with.

My Son Konnor has been receiving services from LEEP for about 3 years now. He absolutely loves it. He always feels welcome and has found new friends. This organization goes above and beyond to make sure people with special needs have the support and opportunities they need to belong in a community. Thank you LEEP for all you do. Not only for my son, but for all others with special needs.

LEEP is a fantastic organization that supports people with disabilities who want to participate in healthy leisure activities and healthy living. The staff is very attentive to the participants needs and strive to make each activity fun and engaging. LEEP tries to include disabled and non-disabled people interacting together in sporting events and other leisure activities. This opens up communication throughout the greater Mankato area about disabled peoples’ needs. LEEP is one amazing organization.
