Race to Change Lives. No Experience Required.
The Arc's Achievement Challenge is a unique opportunity to demonstrate the abilities of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Through our participation in an existing community event like the Colfax Marathon’s races, we are actively changing expectations and perceptions of what people with I/DD can achieve when given the opportunity.
Like racing 3.1 miles, for example.*
On Saturday, May 19, The Achievement Challenge team, alongside thousands of other racers, will take over City Park for a 5K race* that will challenge perceptions of people with I/DD.
Whether you walk, roll, or sprint to the finish line, we need you to be there with us.
Let’s face it, when you’re watching dozens of people decked out in blazing orange triumphantly crossing the finish line…ability is all you see
While the Achievement Challenge is an amazing opportunity to change hearts and minds, it’s also a chance to raise mission-critical funds for The Arc. With the simple Crowdrise fundraising platform, you can quickly and easily rally your friends and family to help us meet our goal of raising $10,000 to support the life-changing advocacy that helps people overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams.
Ready to get started?
*If 3.1 miles isn’t enough for you, you can still help raise awareness through participation in the Sunday events, too, with distances started at 5 miles.
