SUPPORTING ADAPTIVE ATHLETES IN THE PURSUIT OF
ACCESSIBILITY, INCLUSION, AND EQUITY
The Para Guide Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, was founded in Charlotte, NC in 2017 with the purpose of supporting adaptive athletes in the pursuit of accessibility, inclusion, and equity. The services provided by Para Guide include sighted guides for adaptive athletes who want to walk, run, cycle, and swim or participate in group exercise events.
PARA GUIDE AT A GLANCE
ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL - OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL - EQUITY FOR ALL
Since 2017 Para Guide has made an impact thanks to the support of volunteers and the local community.
Para Guide provides guides for swimming, cycling, running and group activities.
Para Guide provides transportation scholarships for events.
During the Covid 19 Pandemic, Para Guide was quick to respond by providing donated fitness equipment for the adaptive individuals we support. Since the Pandemic began, Para Guide has supplied at home fitness equipment to over 50 adaptive individuals.
