Population(s) Served
People with intellectual disabilities

Since the program started in 2010, Athletes Without Limits DC-based Integrated Rowing program for athletes with intellectual impairment and other disabilities has been a national leader in expanding inclusivity and diversity within the sport of rowing. In 2018 our longstanding partnership with disabled "Veteran Leaders" gained us recogitition as one of the largest Freedom Rows clubs supported by US Rowing. In 2020 AWL was recognised by The Head of the Charles & Gold Cup Regattas who awarded AWL & DC Strokes a grant for our efforts to bring rowing to Black Indigenous People Of Color (BIPOC) and under- resourced youth, and in 2022 we worked together with A Most Beautiful Thing Inclusion Fund (AMBTIF) to further develop that mission.
