Our vision

“The Center will be woven into the fabric of the community, offering opportunities for all athletes to participate in sports without limitation or barriers.”

The Sports Center & Research Institute’s future location is in League City, Texas. This campus will become a World Class Destination where athletes, students, educators, researchers, and Paralympians will gather together from around the world. It’s all about Inclusion!

“At the inception of this campus, the foundation envisioned a Sports Center and Research Institute,” says Josephine Sullivan, Founder, and CEO of the Christina Sullivan Foundation.

Josephine Sullivan, a visionary, along with her team, heads the planning efforts for this innovative campus, offering a dedicated space that supports a variety of activities to a variety of people—a center of inclusiveness for all. Welcoming athletes’ students, families, researchers, and academia; representing all levels regardless of age or ability with or without intellectual or physical challenges to provide inclusion in Sports, Education, Research, and Life.
