We are turning disabilities into Capabilities Every Day.


CATAPULT is a 501c3 non-profit entity that aims to CATAPULT physically challenged individuals over adversity and into the world of endurance sports and athletics.

Founded in 2015 by a group of like minded Houston area triathletes and runners, CATAPULT hopes to become the lead organization in the country assisting any individual with a disability via coaching, funding, training, education and most importantly, full open access, to the endurance sports world.

CATAPULT will strive to help those individuals who just experienced a disabling life changing event or just want to find a hobby that can improve their way of life, all the way to athletes who are TEAM USA Paralympic hopefuls.

CATAPULT will be in our community, finding these athletes, educating them, assisting them, and helping to launch them to the finish line!
