Accessibility Challenge Cup

Our PaddleALL dragon boat team will be entered into the accessibility community division challenge cup. In this division, teams consist of athletes who have an intellectual disability, as well as their caregivers and supporters.

The Accessibility Challenge Cup was introduced to provide an opportunity for those with a disability, their caregivers, and supporters to experience an amazing day on the water, working together to cross the finish line. A chance to try a new sport and experience a festival filled with live music, a variety of artisans, exhibitors, culinary treats, a children’s area, and non-stop racing.

The Accessibility Challenge Cup races show us the very best of what sport has to offer – hard work, determination, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
