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
At Para Guide, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2017, we have been determined to make an impact. Thanks to the support of our volunteers and local community we have been able to do that.
NEED A SIGHTED GUIDE?
Para Guide will provide you with a sighted guide for all of your swimming, cycling, running and group activities.
NEED A COACH?
Para Guide will provide you coaching and training plans to get you ready for your next swimming, cycling, running or triathlon event.
Para Guide is committed to not only supporting you during your athletic events, but also with transportation to and from your event.
When the Covid 19 Pandemic forced stay at home mandates and social distancing requirements, 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 30 adaptive individuals. Do you have a bicycle, weights or treadmill you would like to donate?
