THE STORY:

Celebrate Love Always - Our Mission: "Sharing the joy of running with those who are mobility challenged". Fundraising in local communities for Adaptive Running Chairs.

The awareness of inclusion in running is growing. Our first Celebrate Love Always adaptive running chair was donated to Fusion Inclusion at their Fusion Racing 2nd Annual Run for Kids 5K at Nemours on September 24, 2016 in Wilmington, DE. What a glorious morning we had!

Our second Celebrate Love Always chair was just unveiled here in Bethlehem, PA at the Runner's World Festival and Half on October 15 & 16, 2016.  See CelebrateLoveAlways.org and our Facebook page for the exciting highlights from that 5K and Half Marathon! 

Running is a celebration of the freedom of our bodies and our minds to explore new paths, fields and roads. Whether running by yourself, or with a group, or running in a community event, running fills us with great joy and gratitude for the gifts we have been given.

For those children and adults who are mobility challenged, that joy of running, either in a local 5K with their friends, or simply exploring a beautiful new trail with the wind in their face and the sun warming them, is a gift they do not take for granted.

To share this joy of running, and to celebrate the gift of love that we can always share more of, we have started Celebrate Love Always with a dual Goal: "To increase awareness and availability of Adaptive Running Chairs in local communities". To achieve this goal we need your love, prayers and generosity...of time, talent and treasure.

The Adaptive Running Chairs which Celebrate Love Always will make available in local communities cost almost $5,000 each , and your generous contribution to Celebrate Love Always is critical to achieving our goal of making an Adaptive Running Chair available in all interested communities. Since these chairs must be maintained, safely stored (when not in use) and delivered to local running events, your generosity of time and talent to help in these "pit crew" areas is also greatly appreciated.

Based on the great interest we received at the Runner's World Festival, Celebrate Love Always will soon begin working on plan for a third  Adaptive Running Chair, for another local community interested in spreading the message of inclusion in the sport of running! Thank you for your love and support.
