Mission

IncludeAbility inc. is an organization which promotes the inclusion of youth (K-12) with physical and/or intellectual challenges through youth sports and other activities; focusing on what’s possible, not the limitations by including ALL in mainstream sports and events.

Team IncludeAbility will provide the expertise for Race Directors, Coaches and Teachers to put IncludeAbility in action.

WHY?

IncludeAbility comes from the inspiration of Trace and Jennifer's son Anthony who has Down syndrome.  It has been the inclusion in sports that has allowed Anthony to have fun competing with his peers and growing physically, socially and intellectually.  

VISIOn

Race Directors IncludeAbility friendly;  Imagine the starting line at a 5K lined with kids of ALL abilities and multiple kids in wheelchairs pushed by kids making their dreams come true.

Coaches and youth leaders initiating our Guiding Principles with their athletes by volunteering in events to help those less fortunate participate and be included.

Our shared videos will inspire the world of the value of IncludeAbility.
