I am a Visually Impaired (VI) athlete, and this year will be the first that I've participated in Triathlons. I've made connections with some amazing people already, including Keri, and want to do what I can to help support Dare2Tri! You can read more about my background / story at http://theimperfectjourney.com/james-gilliard-athlete-on-the-move/. This is a blog post that I wrote for The Imperfect Journey's site.
I will be participating in the Naperville Triathlon in August (Aug 2nd), and want to raise fund for Dare2Tri as I do. Please donate, share my page and help me to reach my goal before August 2nd!
Raising Funds and Awareness for Dare2tri - ONE SUPPORTS MANY
The Dare2tri Paratriathlon Club Race2Raise Team is comprised of athletes who want to make their race(s) more meaningful by supporting many! Athletes will raise funds and awareness for Dare2tri by competing in various triathlons or endurance races throughout the season.
Funds will directly go toward Dare2tri athletes and programs. Many individuals with disabilities have expensive medical bills, and adaptive sports equipment is not covered by insurance. Dare2tri believes that by remaining active, athletes build confidence, autonomy, and self-worth in both sports and in other areas of life. Dare2tri empowers athletes to believe they can do anything they set their mind to.
About Dare2tri: Launched in 2011, the club works with athletes of all ability levels from beginner to elite. Dare2tri serves youth, adults, and injured service members who have a physical disability such as amputation, spinal cord injury, stroke, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, and those with visual impairments and blindness. Dare2tri is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
