Hot COCO 2021, Our 13th Annual!

At Abilities Without Boundaries (AWB) we believe in endless possibilities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Providing support, Monday through Friday, has been particularly challenging in these COVID-19 times.

These amazing, wonderful people want to work, contribute and participate. Some struggle with even the most basic functions of life. Others just need a bit of guidance, job training and a place to be.

For 43 years AWB has helped disabled adults ages 21 to 80 live better, happier and more productive lives. We proudly serve Cheshire and surrounding towns. We provide individual and group employment opportunities, promote workplace diversity and offer social and developmental services.

Please consider a sponsorship donation in any amount.

We Need Your Help More Than Ever!

Due to COVID-19 our virtual event was not as successful. So we need help from our sponsors this year to rebound. We expect a full, in-person event this November. We will operate under safe COVID-19 protocols. However we do expect a strong crowd and lots of exposure for our sponsors!

Here’s a Fun and Fulfilling Way to Help

Our Hot COCO 5K race and Kids Fun Run is Abilities Without Boundaries’ single biggest annual fundraiser.

In 2019 we had nearly 1,000 runners. Their families, supporters and friends boosted event attendance to over two thousand.

Sponsor early to be included in our promotional emails, social media shares and more!

Prior to race day our event is professionally promoted by JB Sports to thousands of runners across the state. This year they will send extra email blasts. Each one reaches more than 8,500 area residents.

Sponsors will be listed on our website with links to their pages.
For example, here are our supporters from the last in-person race: 2019 Sponsors.
