Third Time's a charm running with the Kyle Pease Foundation. On March 18, 2018, I will again be competing in the Publix Half Marathon (13.1). We are excited to be racing alongside the Kyle Pease Foundation and their friends. This year we are back with our first athlete that started it all for me. Matthew Cook. (See pictures from our first race)
KPF was founded in 2011 to create awareness and raise funds to promote success for persons with disabilities by providing assistance to meet their individual needs through sports. In 2011 the Pease brothers ran this race as the only push assist team. In the Spring of 2017, we shared the road with 42 wheelchair athletes along with volunteer runners totaling over 150 strong!!!
Programs of the KPF may include scholarship opportunities, purchasing of medical equipment or adaptive sports equipment for others or contributing to other organizations that provide similar assistance to disabled persons as well as participating in educational campaigns to create awareness about Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. KPF will provide these services directly to individuals as well as to partner with other existing non-profit organizations to achieve these goals. Direct benefits will be limited to persons with disabilities who need adaptive sports equipment, mobility devices or medical care. With your help we can allow more individuals to experience sports in a fully inclusive environment.
The Publix half marathon is one of our largest fundraisers and helps support the purchase of new equipment and helps support our 18 events in 2018! Every dollar helps and is 100% tax-deductible! Lest we not forget...Where there's a wheel, there's a way!" I am extremely appreciative of your support!
