Ability Olympics

The event is for individuals ages 2 –22 with ANY disability. The mission is to empower individuals by giving them the chance to showcase their skills and learn in a challenging and successful athletic environment. During this event, participants will have opportunities to sign up in two different activity sessions showcasing a variety of activities. Participants get an opportunity to experience life of an athlete. In addition, participants will get an opportunity to try sports/ activities that peak their interest, but possibly have never tried. Each participant will be assigned a one on one mentor who will support him or her and their family throughout the day (i.e. during each event) and become his or her biggest fan! Sibling events and kids zone for young children also available.

Thank you to all of our families that came to Ability Olympics in April 2018! Check back here in December 2018 for more information on Ability Olypics 2019.
