Mentelity Foundation

Motivating and inspiring children and young adults living with physical challenges is what drives us. We want children and young adults to become the best version of themselves. Therefore, we motivate them to get moving and pursue their dreams by organizing various sports activities.
Everyone has the right to become the best version of themselves. With our Re-abled program, we are changing lives of prosthetic and orthotic users by raising the bar again and showing them what is still possible with the right tools and guidance.
In addition, we inspire with the mindset and thought of Bibian Mentel, multiple internationally distinguished paralympic athlete, is the foundation for our actions even after her death in 2021. It is our goal to make her dream come true: Equal opportunities for everyone with a physical challenge.
