Adaptive Amazing Race 2022

Come celebrate the 21st anniversary of CRIS Adaptive by joining us in our 3rd annual Adaptive Amazing Race fundraiser!

What is the Adaptive Amazing Race?

Teams consisting of 4-6 participants will utilize a piece of adaptive equipment and race against the clock and other teams, completing challenges for a chance to win prizes! These challenges will test your senses, problem-solving, and teamwork skills.

Why do we host this event?

The annual Adaptive Amazing Race is a fundraising event for CRIS held in August to celebrate our anniversary.

Thanks to last year’s participants, this event brought in donations to help ensure CRIS Adaptive can continue to break down barriers and increase outdoor recreational accessibility.

Six individuals navigate through a course of hula hoops and one of the individuals is in a TrailRider.
Four individuals in orange stand behind an individual in a TrailRider with big smiles.

These Donations allow us to:

-Maintain adaptive equipment

– Run our programs

-Cover membership and trip fees for individuals who need financial support

-Purchase new adaptive equipment

Does your team have what it takes to be crowned the 2022 Adaptive Amazing Race champion?
