The Ability Experience Challenges are your way to help impact the lives of people with disabilities across the country while challenging yourself mentally and physically. These events are open to anyone that wants to challenge themselves in order to promote the abilities of all people.
Through The Ability Experience Challenges events, we are providing opportunities for people of all abilities to come together to complete a common goal. Join us for a 5k, 10k, half marathon or a full marathon. Whether you decided to walk, run or roll, you can help provide an opportunity for athletes with disabilities to share in the same or similar experience. Funds raised through these events help provide people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in these event along side the rest of the participants!

Virtual Challenge Events
Virtual Challenge events allow you to choose your own event to impact the organization. If you cannot join a Signature Event team, then find a local event you want to complete, choose your fundraising goal and let The Ability Experience staff help you reach your goal. If you happen to be completing the same event as another Virtual Challenge participant (events listed below), we will be happy to put you in touch with other team members! All Virtual Challenge event participants will receive a training shirt, a running shirt for your event and staff support leading up to your event. Sign up now to take on your virtual challenge!
