The most successful and comprehensive program of its kind, the University of Arizona's Adaptive Athletics Program includes six competitive teams as well as an adaptive fitness center. In its 40-year history, Adaptive Athletics has sent 27 athletes to the Paralympics and has won a number of national titles. UA wheelchair tennis player Dana Mathewson competes worldwide and has her sights set on the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janiero.
An eight-kilometer road race, Jim Click's Run 'N' Roll — one of the oldest and most popular fitness events in Tucson — is held on the UA campus annually and benefits Adaptive Athletics. Click, a Tucson auto dealer, founded the race, which will be held this year on Oct. 4. For more information or to register, visit the race's website.
