Race for a Reason

Race for a Reason

Race for a Reason is a team of amazing athletes. The teams seek to increase physical and social health for athletes of all abilities through training and racing together.

ConnectAbility provides adaptive equipment (racing wheelchairs) for training and competition. The teams  have the opportunity to participate in regional races each year as a group . Teams enjoy training together before each race and spreading the message everywhere we race that inclusion is awesome!

Our teams are funded by annual sponsorships. The 2018 Season is sponsored by Kevin Tharpe, Sonshine Farms, Precise Fit Dental Labs and Next Star Communications. Please contact us if you or your business is interested in a sponsorship.

We had a great group of runners come out to run with ConnectAbility’s Race for a Reason Program at Dahlonega’s Annual Firecracker 5k on the Fourth of July! We took up the entire width of the starting line and had a blast!
