Training An Olympic Hopeful
Every athlete's dream is to represent their country at the biggest sporting event in the world, the Olympics. Athletes Without Limits gives athletes with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to represent the red, white, and blue at international competition, including the Paralympic games. We are proud to announce that we are starting the first Track & Field program for these athletes on the West Coast.
Jack is our first athlete that we will be training to represent the USA and qualify for the Paralympic games in Rio. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat to stay up to date on his Road to Rio!
