We've reimagined our annual Ramp Crawl event for 2021

Adaptive Sports Showcase of Athletes

The 7th Annual Ramp Crawl will be August 20, 2021 from 4pm-7pm under the Tent at Schenley Plaza. This year's event is designed to highlight athletes of all abilities through our Adaptive Sports Showcase of Athletes. We'll learn from the athletes themselves through demonstrations of wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby, handcycle racing, and more.

The event is FREE for people of all abilities to attend. Masks will be required for all attendees and vendors while under the tent. More details and event registration information can be found here.
