Corporate Partnership

An Opportunity for Partnership

The IM ABLE Foundation is seeking sponsorship to help operate our Got the Nerve? Triathlon. This event hosts adaptive and able-body competitions with the intent to raise awareness and funding for adaptive programs.

IM ABLE chooses to run events as fundraisers because it gives adaptive athletes a platform to realize their potential. Adaptive athletes come from all walks of life and backgrounds. Military veterans, degenerative diseases, accidents, and born conditions are just some of the ways people become adaptive. Competitions become life motivating goals where the training for these goals improves physical and mental conditions.

By supporting IM ABLE, you are bettering lives. We offer you participation, marketing opportunities, and VIP gatherings in exchange for your generosity. Above all, we thank you and we recognize your financial support means sso much to those involved in IM ABLE programming.

Join us as we celebrate our 17th year in 2020. There is a registration limit of 1,000 competitors and we average 2,500 spectators. There are numerous opportunities to represent your company but we will also work with sponsors with any special requests you may have.

To make arrangements or ask a question, please contact our partnership coordinator at info@imablefoundation.org
