United Athletics was founded in 2012 with the intention of bridging the gap between individuals who require physical assistance to race and the local sporting community. During our 2013 season, 28 different individuals competed in 30 events!
The mission of United Athletics is to pair local athletes and individuals who require physical assistance to participate in a variety of events – swimming, biking, running, and triathlon races. Participation in sporting events promotes both social inclusion and fellowship in a healthy athletic environment.
United Athletics recognizes the financial hardships that these families face due to extensive medical bills. United Athletics will establish a medical fund where these special athletes and their families may apply for assistance with these medical bills.
Funds raised for United Athletics are used to purchase equipment (bike trailers, adaptive strollers, rafts, tire changing kits, life jackets, etc), to pay for the Assisted Athlete's race fees, any hotel costs for out of town races, and any other expenses that the Assisted Athletes might occur during the course of our races. The remaining funs will then be used to fund a medical program where families with children with special needs can apply for medical assistance.
