About This Activity

Our run is about celebrating the full potential of every human being regardless of their physical limitations. Our vision is to see athletes with physical disabilities have the chance to experience being an athlete for a day.

Our run will feature a 5k run and walk, but the highlight of our run will feature athletes in wheelchairs being pushed on a 5k by a family member or sponsoring athlete. Because everyone deserves a chance to feel the wind in their hair, wipe sweat from their faces, and hear a crowd cheer them on. In the spirit of Team Hoyt, our race is out to break barriers for those with Cerebral Palsy.

 

Notes on Registration
  • Because of the limited number of wheelchair racers that need pushers, we will be assigning people interested in pushing the chairs based on availability. If you are intersted in pushing a chair-racer in need please email jonchungdc@gmail.com

  • Wheelchair racers and their pushers must register separately if you need to be paired. If a family member will be pushing the wheelchair racer, you have the option to register just the wheelchair athlete alone. We encourage you to register both members because the proceeds go to a great cause 
  • Many people are having difficulty with registering a team. Team registration happens on the “COMPLETE FORM” tab of the active registration process. This should be the first page you see after creating an account. The box will say “Team Information”.
