Archer's YMCA TownLake Challenge

About Archer's YMCA TownLake Challenge

Archer Hadley challenges each of us bipeds to recognize how un-flat the world really is. Trade your feet for wheels and try to navigate your world from a wheelchair. We will provide the wheelchair and the transformative experience. You bring an open mind, and a willingness to try something amazing. Observers can participate too! We’re raising money and awareness and your donations make all the difference to our success.

For the second straight year, the YMCA of Austin is partnering with Archer’s Challenge to create an immersive kick-off event that celebrates and promotes accessibility in public spaces for all. Challengers at the kickoff event will be able to participate in several in-chair team and solo activities and enjoy outdoor music, food and fun from 8 a.m. to noon. Activities at the TownLake Y include participating in a wheelchair a 3.25-mile relay roll around the Town Lake trail (the Ann and Roy Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake).
