We Empower Individuals with Disabilities to Train and Compete in Mainstream Running and Triathlon Events. OUR WINNING FORMULA: ATHLETES + WINGMEN = FINISH

Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA) began with a group of motivated, volunteer athletes who wanted to use their abilities to support individuals living with disabilities in Baltimore City. In 2007, they partnered with the William S. Baer School, to share the thrill of athletic competition with Baer Student Athletes living with disabilities.

ASA's success can be defined by how many people have been encouraged to cross the finish line since 2007. With strong leadership and dedicated WingMen, donors and volunteers, sponsors and partners, ASA continues to empower Athletes living with disabilities to train and compete in over 60 running and triathlon events per year.

ASA's reach has extended from Baltimore City to the mid-Atlantic region, offering mentoring, training, and competitive opportunities. All programs are offered at no cost to the Athletes, families, or organizations that support them.

Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity funded entirely by our private donors, corporate sponsors, and granting organizations.
