Our inaugural race celebrates the 30th anniversary of the signing of the American’s With Disabilities Act and will lift up local families coping with disabilities.
The event features a 5k run/walk/roll (wheelchairs/hand cycles ONLY No skateboards or rollerblades allowed) and spotlights those with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities. This fun event will feature music from the 80's, so wear your neon, hair band gear, tutu's, head bands, leg warmers or favorite 80's band shirts!
This is a certified 5K run/walk (Chip timing by AccuChip) on flat, closed roads behind the Gardens mall with beautiful scenery.
Don’t want to walk or roll 3.1 miles? You can still support this event by taking a leisurely 1 mile stroll around the scenic lake near the start line. Walking or wheelchairs ONLY. NO hand cycles, skateboards or rollerblades.
Your support will empower the Coalition for Independent Living Options to hold free summer camps and after-school programs for special needs youth and to build ramps so seniors with disabilities can get in and out of their homes.
And, you will help the Achilles International South Florida Chapter, which encourages people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events in order to promote personal achievement, enhance self-esteem and lower barriers to living a fulfilled life.
