Hot COCO 2022, Our 14th Annual!

Abilities Without Boundaries janitorial crewAt Abilities Without Boundaries (AWB) we believe in endless possibilities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

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. Providing support, Monday through Friday also provides respite for parents and caregivers.

For 44 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 Survived COVID, Now Help us Thrive!

We made it through! Can we now count on you? Our services survived the pandemic. (Not all agencies did.) We had to pivot to virtual services but now are back in-person with work crews on the job in Cheshire and a dozen surrounding towns. The number of adults with disabilities seeking our services is climbing. This puts more pressure on staff, transportation, facility and more. Your sponsorship helps us cover the cost of 18 vans. It covers the extras not provided by state support, like special outings, landscaping equipment and more.

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.

We expect more than 1,000 participants, runners, kids, walkers plus their families, supporters and friends.

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: 2021 Sponsors.
