Ability Fund Grant Applications Now Open

Two Dare2tri athletes with lower leg amputations perform a functional strength exercise with a resistance band.

Through the Ability Fund, Dare2tri provides financial and equipment grants to eligible athletes who have a physical disability or visual impairment. The goal of the Ability Fund is to eliminate the barrier of high-priced equipment, travel, coaching, and race entry fees.

Due to COVID-19, the summer 2020 round of the Ability Fund is primarily geared toward athletes with a demonstrated commitment to virtual training and racing opportunities.
