Fort Wayne-based Turnstone Center has created a Paralympic Training Site Advisory Board. The goal of the new board is to implement initiatives to maximize resources following the facility's designation as an official U.S. Paralympic training site.

The mission of the advisory board is to create marketing and revenue campaigns to support the growth of Turnstone’s Paralympic Training Site in Fort Wayne.

“The advisory board members' counsel, advice, and engagement with our new training site will be key in building a firm support base to promote elite athlete training opportunities, Paralympic pipeline competitions, and further develop our relationship with the United States Olympic Committee,” said Mike Mushett, Turnstone chief executive officer in a news release.
