Welcome to Abilities Movement’s Second Annual BE YOU Run, Walk and Wheel Charity Race! This race is for individuals of all fitness levels and abilities to join together for a 5K race/1.25 mile walk that truly represents connection, community, fitness, and fun!

Help us support our community! In 2022, support efforts helped Abilities Movement provide programs and opportunities for over 100 community members and their families. Abilities Movement helps facilitate fitness and sports opportunities for individuals with varying needs and health diagnoses, including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Down Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Epilepsy, Visual Impairments, Traumatic Brain Injury, Mental Health Challenges, Developmental Disabilities, Surgery/Injury Recovery, and Genetic Disorders. Abilities Movement is one of few providers who offer personalized fitness for people with severe medical needs.

Abilities Movement provides comprehensive, adapted opportunities through our programs and classes including: Personalized Fitness, TeleFtiness, Mighty Dunks Adapted Basketball, Rochester Speed Demons Power Wheelchair Soccer, Group Biking, Kayaking, Hiking, Snow Sports, and Adapted Run Club. Abilities Movement activities foster physical health benefits (cardiovascular, endurance, muscle/joint strength, flexibility and balance) and socio-emotional health benefits (self-confidence, cooperation, community engagement, connection with nature). These activities increase independence and quality of life for program participants who have various disabilities.

Join Abilities Movement and the entire greater Rochester area community as we join together for the BE YOU Charity Race, bringing our entire community together to run, walk, and wheel together!
