BSTI gets physically challenged people up and moving on adaptive exercise equipment

BSTI’s major charity contribution this year was to the IM Able Foundation. The mission of the IM ABLE Foundation is to remove obstacles that prevent people affected by disabilities from being physically active. Recently IM Able organized a competitive duathlon race in Wyomissing PA as one of their annual fund raising events. A duathlon combines running and bicycling. The event also had a category for physically challenged athletes to compete on adaptive equipment, many of which was donated to them by the IM Able Foundation. Before the race started, Chris Kaag, founder of IM Able and an adaptive athlete himself, presented recumbent tricycles to two grant recipients. BSTI’s contribution went directly toward the purchase of this adaptive equipment. Here are some photos of the presentation and the adaptive athletes in action:
