2023 Impact Report

A Message From Our Executive Director

As I sit down to reflect on the past 12 months, my heart is bursting with gratitude. Thank you for making Dare2tri not just an organization but a vibrant, supportive community. Your passion, dedication, and spirit have shaped this year into something truly remarkable.

As we flip the calendar to a Paralympic Games year in 2024, let’s first take a moment to look back at the wonderful year behind us—a year shaped by our collective efforts and shared commitment to adaptive sports.

With heartfelt thanks and excitement for the journey ahead,

Keri Serota
Co-Founder & Executive Director

Our Programs & Participants

We proudly delivered top-tier programming throughout 2023, from our flagship paratriathlon camps and Road2Ride cycling clinics to weekly practices and a brand new Learn2Guide Clinic. These programs and more are truly the cornerstone for thousands of athletes served.

The Ability Fund

We deepened our commitment to breaking financial barriers by providing grants to our athletes through The Ability Fund. This year, grant recipients received essential gear such as racing wheelchairs, sports prosthetics, custom adaptive bikes, and more. These grants ensure that every athlete, regardless of their circumstances, has the precise tools they need to excel in multisport.

After years of borrowing adaptive equipment, Skyler received a $4,100 grant to secure a brand-new racing chair. A Paratriathlon National Champion and student athlete at the University of Arizona, Skyler aspires to compete on the international race circuit.

Our Partners

Some of the world’s most renowned brands didn’t just invest; they wholeheartedly embraced Dare2tri’s mission. Together, several global sporting leaders committed over $80,000 in grant funds, creating a profound impact on our programs and the lives of those we serve. Yet, it goes beyond financial support. It’s about belief—belief in the transformative power of adaptive sports, belief in the potential of every athlete, and belief in Dare2tri as a catalyst for change.
