To our athletes, volunteers, staff member, and supporters:
With everything going on in the world, we want to take a moment and remind you that you’re a valued member of the Dare2tri family. This is a difficult time, flooded with concerns about health, family, finances, and the unknown. Now more than ever, we believe it’s important to feel connected, engaged, and even inspired. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many aspects of life as we know it have drastically changed, but our commitment to our athletes and community at large has not.
During this time, and always, the health and safety of the entire Dare2tri community is our highest priority. In accordance with the current CDC recommendations related to coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to cancel all programming through March 31. We will also be cancelling our Start the Season kickoff scheduled for April 26 based on the recommendation to cancel all large events through May 15.
In light of these cancellations, we will continue to do what we do best: ADAPT.
We firmly remain dedicated to our mission to enhance the lives of individuals with physical disabilities and visual impairments. These may be challenging times, but we will embrace them with resilience, grace, and creativity. As you read this, our team is focused on finding digital solutions to keep our athletes active, engaged and connected during this time of social distancing. What that will look like exactly is still being determined, but we will rely on technology as social distancing remains critical. While we can’t connect physically, we look forward to connecting with you virtually in the coming days and weeks.
This is uncharted territory. What lies ahead is still unknown—and that’s okay. While we don’t have all the answers quite yet, we do know this: Staying connected to one another is crucial. With a collective resolve, we will weather this complex situation together. Let’s continue to strengthen each other; to check in with one another; to remain hopeful. In times of need, we hope you’ll feel empowered to reach out to us and let us know how we can help. We are here—now, later, whenever we’re needed—to support you to the best of our ability.
Stay positive, stay home, and be well.
