The annual ASA 5K Run Baltimore is one of more than 60 running and triathlon events that donors, partners, sponsors and volunteers of Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA) participate in each year.
Seeing a need within the Baltimore community, ASA set out in 2007 with the mission to provide athletic mentoring, training and competitive opportunities to children and young adults with disabilities. Baltimore’s response was astounding and news about ASA programs spread quickly to surrounding communities. In just a few short years our reach grew beyond the Baltimore area. ASA now serves children within the entire Mid-Atlantic region. We show no signs of slowing down either, and expect interest in our mission to only increase in the coming months and years.
Obviously, we don’t do any of this alone. It’s only through you – the individuals, families and businesses within our communities – that make it all possible. We rely on your continued support to provide the participation and resources to bring the ASA mission to life, and turn that vision into reality for the young people we serve.
If you’re just learning about ASA and looking for a way to make a difference in your community, within yourself or wanting to enrich your organization, ASA is a fantastic opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you!
