·IM ABLE Foundation
After being diagnosed with AMN (adrenomyeloneuropathy), a degenerative nerve condition, Chris Kaag founded IM ABLE Foundation to help motivate others, both with and without disabilities, to redefine the way they view their own personal challenges.

Once this potential is realized, the possibilities are endless.
