Welcome to Active Life Foundation (ALF), a Swedish charitable foundation.

ALF was founded as a charity in 1995, following the skiing accident of the alpine skier Thomas Fogdö. The King of Sweden became and remains our patron.

ALF’s primary aims are

  • to provide support to injured sportsmen and women so that they can return to a more active life, for example to provide grants for remedial therapy, operations, sports wheelchairs and other support
  • to promote the importance of having sports insurance
  • to support medical research into sports injuries
  • Sportsmen and women at any level who are members of a sports club or association are eligible to apply.

Sportsmen and women at any level who are members of a sports club or association are eligible to apply.

ALF is dependent on publicity in order to raise funds so that the foundation can support its objectives. We are therefore very proud of our association with the Swedish Ski Association and Swedish Alpine Ski team, who wear the ALF logo on their jackets. This, along with other promotional activities around the Swedish Alpine Ski team aims to raise our profile so that even more people will donate funds in support of ALF’s objectives.

ALF is discussing sponsorship opportunities with companies and organisations to generate further revenues to help the foundation pursue its goals.
