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. Additionally, 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.
During the 2013 racing season, United Athletics linked 28 different Assisted Athletes with 30 different races! These events included 5k races, 10 mile race, Sprint/Olymipic Triathlons, Bike races, and Open Water Swimming Events. Please see our 2014 Schedule of Events to see what we have to offer you for our next Racing Season!
United Athletics wishes to say a special thank you to all of our sponsors for their support of this cause, our Families who loaned us their children, or racers who gave of their bodies, our volunteers who gave of their time, and our community who embraced us all.
United Athletics has applied and is currently awaiting approval for a 501c status. Through our Crowdrise Site, we are able to accept tax deductible donations. See our Donations link for further information.
