The We Can event aims to eliminate barriers of physical disabilities and allow competitors of all levels and abilities to race together. Our goal is to change the common perception of disability in the minds of all participants and to promote community wellness while providing a race that is for everyone – from beginners to competitive runners, joggers and walkers. It includes the opportunity for individuals using wheelchairs to compete individually or with the assistance of a team of up to three pushers during the race.
This race covers the typical 5K (3.1 miles) distance through our community’s beautiful park and includes a 1 mile distance as another option. Memorial Stadium will welcome the participants at the end of the race with music and excitement! Awards will be given to the top finishers in several categories.
AmTrykes are designed and customized for differently-abled individuals allowing them to participate in fun activities for wellness with their friends and family. Since our first event in 2011, almost 30 AmTrykes have been given to individuals and families and we have helped support a fundraising effort for a barrier-free playground in our community.
