Team TFO (Try For Others) encourages both able-bodied and disabled individuals to defy stereotypes, challenge their limitations, and inspire humanity. As a member of Team TFO, individuals identify an athletic challenge to overcome (marathon, triathlon, hike, race, etc.) and give meaning to their pursuit by raising funds so that TFO can help disabled persons overcome their own challenges.
TFO founder and paralyzed athlete, Dominic Cooke, first began thinking about the program in 2009 after returning from a handcycling camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO.
My week in Colorado reminded me how special it is to be part of a team. You have the same competitive mind-set, the same common goals, and the support of teammates to help you achieve those goals.
I wanted to bring that same team dynamic to Try For Others, and encourage both able-bodied and disabled individuals to inspire each other and challenge their limitations.
