Our 10th Anniversary turned into another incredibly inspirational day showcasing the abilities of all of our competitors. Young, old, veteran/beginner triathletes and disabled all coming together to challenge themselves and to support IM ABLE’s goal to empower those with disabilities to Get Up and Move!

This year 660 individuals and 65 teams made up the field of competitors. 4 disabled athletes did the entire race and another 4 did a portion as part of a team.

Thank you to all who came out to make this milestone for IM ABLE a memorable one. We presented Keith Shirk from Lancaster, PA with funding for a new Nuke off-road hand cycle, which was presented by Eric Schippers from our title sponsor Penn National Gaming. Big thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters as well as our incredible group of volunteers who dedicated a lot of their time and energy to ensure the race went as smoothly as possible.

With the help of all of these great people we are able to change the lives of those with disabilities by showing them what IS possible and changing the perceptions of what someone with a disability is able to accomplish!!
