ATI’s first annual all-inclusive street race has two distances – a 5K and a ½ K – to ensure that athletes of all abilities are able to fully participate in this physical challenge. Join us as we walk, run, and roll our way toward a community that is accessible for everyone!
All proceeds go towards Universal Design initiatives in honor of our founder, Frances A. Pizzola.
What is Universal Design?
“Universal Design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.” – Ronald Mace, architect and disability rights advocate
Universal Design benefits everyone! We see it in buildings that have zero-step entrances and automatic doors, so that a person using a mobility aid, pushing a stroller, or carrying a package can easily enter through the front door. Other examples might include a crosswalk signal that provides both visual and auditory cues for pedestrians, or a piece of technology like a cell phone that has accessibility features built in to eliminate the need for users to download or purchase a separate program.
