[Duluth News Tribune, July 21, 2019] Twin Cities-based Allina Health combined their Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute and Courage Center Duluth together in June 2013 with the official name of the Duluth-based operations now Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute – Northland.

While the name is a mouthful, the mission has been clear: Get people of all abilities outdoors, active and having fun. Courage Kenny now offers curling, power wheelchair soccer, cycling, sailing, alpine skiing and snowboarding, kayaking, full-day sea kayaking adventures on Lake Superior, indoor archery, indoor rock climbing, water skiing, swimming lessons and year-round yoga. There are also one-day community events and clinics, such as the Arrowhead Youth Games, winter dog sled adventures, rowing, scuba diving, and an adapted fishing tournament in June on Fish Lake near Duluth.
