Meet our 2024 Featured Adaptive Athlete, 



Gaylord Gauntlet Featured Sports Association Athlete

Each year, an athlete is selected to be the featured Gaylord Sports Association Athlete!  The featured athlete completes the race with the support of the Gaylord Sports Association Gauntlet Team.  The team typically includes a recreational therapist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and other supporting team members such as a belay team. We provide adaptive equipment as needed such as an all-terrain chair to navigate the course and a climbing harness with a belay team for safety.  The team meets prior to race day to discuss race techniques, safety and to practice skills that will be needed on race day. The athlete and team compete on the same course and obstacles as all the Gauntlet racers!  

The Gaylord Sports Association featured athlete is selected by the Sports Association Gauntlet Team.  Featured athletes are typically someone who has recently been a patient at Gaylord and who would not be able to complete the race without the support of a therapy based team and/or use of specialized adaptive equipment. Past featured athletes have included athletes with a spinal cord injury, amputation, stroke or other mobility impairment.

If you are interested in being considered as the Gaylord Gauntlet Featured Athlete, please contact the Gaylord Sports Association at or 203-284-2772.
