Since 2015, we have led the effort to provide training and full nondiscriminatory access to PC athletes in our community. In the time we have assisted 50 athletes cross the finish line of numerous races across the United States - from a local 5k, to the North American Ironman Championships - if someone can dream it, we want to do our small part in bringing that dream to life.
Since our inception we have been at the forefront of most local endurance races helping them to provide full access to all athletes despite of any physical disability.
It is the mission of CATAPULT to facilitate a lifestyle of health and fitness to physically challenged individuals, so that they may meet their personal goals. CATAPULT will work with individuals in our community and nationally, connecting them with opportunities, training, education, accessibility, and funding, so they may compete at all levels of athletics from finishing a 5k to competing in the Paralympics. CATAPULT aims to motivate and unite the community around us by demonstrating that disabilities are no limit to an individual’s capabilities.
