Abilities 5k Race Description

The Abilities 5k is a community event that raises support and awareness for people with disabilities in our community, while highlighting the ABILITIES of these individuals. We are committed to bringing a life-giving, family atmosphere to Northern Colorado and the surrounding areas.

We want to give back in a tangible way to organizations and people we see supporting and serving this wonderful population, while having an enjoyable time of community and encouraging a healthy atmosphere together.
