Since our very first inclusive event in 1987, World T.E.A.M. creates challenging outdoor athletic events that bring together adaptive and able-bodied persons of all backgrounds. We change lives through sports as diverse as bicycling, mountain climbing, white water rafting, sea kayaking and more.
Participant fundraising and corporate donations, grants and sponsor support provide funding for our organization and our events. Our corporate Financial Documents page offers detailed financial information about our organization, including IRS Form 990s for most years since 1994 and several past annual reviews.
In 2017, approximately 89 percent of all incoming financial support was applied directly to cover the costs of our events and our participating athletes. Face of America is our primary fundraising event for the year, helping support other inclusive events.
Chartered as a national 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in 1993, World T.E.A.M. is headquartered in Holbrook, New York.
Our Mission Statement
World T.E.A.M. brings adaptive and able-bodied athletes together by empowering, enabling and engaging individuals through inclusive athletic events.
For more than 25 years, our organization has used athletics to challenge men, women and children with disabilities to accomplish goals they never thought possible. In all our events – whether mountain climbing, biking, white water rafting or many other sports – we include both adaptive and able-bodied participants.
