According to the CDC, 1 in 4 adults in the U.S. has some form of disability and 1 in 7 struggles with mobility, making it the most common type of disability. That means millions of people have trouble getting around, which is why getting onto a sandy beach is either incredibly difficult, or for many, simply impossible.

The solution? Mobility mats. Mobility mats are nonslip pathways that help individuals with mobility challenges avoid getting stuck in the soft, uneven sand, allowing them to access the beach safely and easily. For so many, mobility mats are a game-changer.

The city of Marco Island has about 18,000 residents, and slightly more than half are 65 or older, according to a U.S. Census Bureau population estimate from 2019.  In season, Marco Island sees tens of thousands more people visiting but had no way to accommodate everyone with differing abilities.

The solution? A permanent Beach Access Mat paid for by the county with the help of a committed team of our members.

Response: Marco Island
