Special Compass

Special Compass in Pembroke Pines, Fla., helps disabled individuals navigate life through education, sports, and housing, independently through inclusion.

The organization pairs able-bodied triathletes with athletes who have various forms of physical disabilities to race together in triathlons. Crossing the finish line together gives the organization’s Buddies purpose, builds self-esteem and confidence to become more independent and contribute to their communities and inspire others.

Grant funding will support equipment, training and race fees.
