Join the Fort Collins Running Club for our 3rd Annual Gifted Feet Program!
Connect with our local adaptive community and learn more about this year’s Gifted Feet recipient, myTEAM TRIUMPH Colorado.
myTEAM TRIUMPH Colorado works to enhance the health and well being of individuals with disabilities by fostering lasting, authentic relationships through the teamwork environment of endurance athletics. myTEAM TRIUMPH Colorado believes that everyone deserves the chance to experience the joy of crossing the finish line. By participating in Gifted Feet 2023, you help make this important work possible!
myTEAM TRIUMPH – Colorado creates community. We exist to provide the support for people with diverse abilities to come together in training, racing and social events with the aim to address social isolation through a teamwork approach of endurance athletics. We provide any specialized equipment necessary, guiding through volunteer athletes, and an encouraging environment to enhance the health and well-being of individuals with disabilities. We take away
the financial burden of the cost of the equipment needed and any costs incurred to train and race.
Here in Northern Colorado, although we will work with any person with disabilities, we have been focusing on ambulatory athletes who need guides and wheelchair/pushrim athletes who want to train and race together in order to bring a greater awareness of the athletic abilities in these athletes.
