Light ignited

Our 2019 Evening2Inspire “Ignite the Light” was an incredible success! From the fullness of our hearts, we thank everyone who was a part of this truly special event, from our honorees, Shirley W. Ryan and Corbett M.W. Ryan, to our amazing sponsors and athletes. Thank you for igniting the light and supporting our mission!

Evening2Inspire is an annual celebration that honors the achievements of Dare2tri athletes, and the supporting community of volunteers, family members, donors, and sponsors.

Proceeds from the event enable Dare2tri to provide life-changing opportunities to individuals with physical disabilities such as amputation, spinal cord injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, and those with visual impairments and blindness.
