The Exceptional Athlete Matters! I want to invite you to be a part of one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in my life. Adventure TEAM Challenge is an intimate and powerful event that I have been a part of for the past three years. Put together by World TEAM Sports, the racecourse is grueling and beautiful and life changing…but it’s nothing compared to the grit of the competitors.
Each Adventure TEAM is made up of five individuals. Three are able bodied, two are disabled, and one of the two must be in a wheelchair. Disabled doesn’t belong anywhere in the description of these athletes. They come from all corners of the country with so many different and compelling stories, and the one quality all of them share is their ability.

Before this experience, I hadn’t spent much time with anyone who might be considered disabled. It took just one Adventure TEAM Challenge weekend to change my view on the power of the human spirit. As exhausted, beaten and cut up as my body was, my mind and heart were being bombarded with inspiration, laughter and new friendships. This is the MOST POWERFUL EVENT NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD ABOUT and I need YOUR help making this magic continue to happen.
Please check out this video of last years event and consider making a donation – your generosity will go to an amazing event!
This is my first time ever fundraising for something I am passionate about, and that’s where you come in. This is strictly an effort to create a impactful and life-changing experience for others, both adaptive and able-bodied. I truly appreciate your help by donating, sharing ATC posts and helping me/us spread awareness about this life changing event. Thank you, PJ
