SPEEDFORNEED!!!! SOB/Area 51/ Union County men, the first SPEEDFORNEED event in South Charlotte kicks off on Saturday, September 30th.  SPEEDFORNEED is an F3NATION initiative that allows persons with disabilities to participate in fitness events utilizing custom racing chairs built from OUR donations.  If you’d like more information, then visit the official site

For more inspiration, watch this awesome video to learn more about helping adaptive athletes race: “The Making of SPEEDFORNEED” . Like what we’re doing and want to support? Click for CrowdRise Donation Link  or  Click for F3Foundation Donation Paypal Link and make sure to put in comments “SPEEDFORNEED“. With your contributions, the team has now purchased 4 chariots, a tent, a trailer, and Medals for the participants.

It is now time to bring this great program to South Charlotte. We will be supporting the Isabella Santos run by setting up a tent to raise awareness and racing with kids in the custom chairs. This is a very worthy cause that support research to cure childhood cancer. You can read about it here

This organization was started by Isabella’s parents with the hope that they could raise the money and awareness to save their little girl. While Isabella fought hard relapse after relapse she was not able to beat this disease, but with the help of this organization and our support we can help other children live her dream of a world “With no more cancer.” So sign up with your M’s, 2.0’s and friends.

Great work Fire Hazard and Buckeye, way to step up and lead this race!

GUYS, This is South Charlotte’s inaugural SPEED FOR NEED event, and the 10th anniversary of the Isabella Santos Race where there will be 1000+ runners. Please make plans to represent F3 whether as a racer or a supporter at this race and show the community who we are and what we’re about. It doesn’t matter what pace you run, faster, slower, with the racing chair, just show up and support before and after. Let Buckeye, Fire Hazard, or myself know if you have questions or want to get involved.
