UT Challenge

This November we will host the fifth annual Archer's Challenge at The University of Texas and offer students the opportunity to experience what life is like for those with mobility impairments. These students change their perspective, raise funds, and create enormous awareness in our community.

Students across the city will get an eye-opening and life-altering experience by participating in Archer's Challenge. Check out the full Gallery to see what the 2017 Archer's Challenge was all about.

What people are saying.....

“By taking part in Archer’s Challenge last year, I gained an important perspective on the obstacles that people in wheelchairs face every day that most of us never notice. I am so grateful to Archer for sharing this experience with me and hope more people take the challenge this year.” - Mayor Steve Adler

"Archer Hadley represents the best of true Texas grit. With a big dream and the determination to achieve it, Archer rose above the challenges he faced and proved that Texans despite all obstacles—can do anything they set their minds to. It just takes an idea and the guts to strive for it.- Governor Greg Abbott

"Archer is an inspiration to me and many others. His dedication to giving back, doing good, and moving us to be the best version of ourselves is transforming communities across the world. Our family is honored to call him a friend and we personally look forward to supporting Archer’s Challenge.- Fayruz Benyousef
