 The Ability Experience Challenges are your way to help impact the lives of people with disabilities across the country while challenging yourself mentally and physically. These events are open to anyone that wants to challenge themselves in order to promote the abilities of all people.

Through The Ability Experience Challenges events, we are providing opportunities for people of ALL abilities to come together to complete a common goal. Join us for a 5k, 10k, half marathon or a full marathon. Whether you decide to walk, run or roll, you can help provide an opportunity for athletes with disabilities to share in the same or similar experience. Funds raised through these events help provide people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in these events along side the rest of the participants!
