Grant Provides Support for Obstacle Course
TTI is proud to accept a $5,000 Community Betterment Grant from Prairie Meadows in support of our 2018 Obstacle Course.  We are grateful for this support, as it helps make the impossible a reality for people with disabilities in our community.

“At Prairie Meadows, we are dedicated to transforming the lives of those living in Central Iowa. We are proud and excited to support this and many other projects in our community,” said Julie Stewart, Prairie Meadows’ Director of Community Relations.

Will you help make the impossible a reality?
 
Our volunteers have one thing in common: a passion for making the seemingly impossible a reality for people with disabilities.  If this is your passion, too, then we'd love to talk to you about our upcoming events! 

We are currently looking for 100+ volunteers for our Obstacle Course on Saturday, Sepember 22nd. 
  • Please let us know you're planning to help that day by signing up online!
  • Invite a friend or a few to join you! Send them the link as well!
  • Are you skilled at carpentry? Or just handy?  Help us build the course on an upcoming Saturday - see our options and sign up online. **We need help in the evenings leading up to the Obstacle Course!!**

Contact Tracy @ 515-249-2255 or tracy@traintoinspireiowa.org and ask her how you can help!
Obstacle Course Feature: Giant Slip-n-Slide!
What's does our Train to Inspire Obstacle Course look like? 
Check out our HUGE slip-n-slide, and note: this year's slide will be even higher than last year!!! 

In addition, we're planning a couple new obstacles.  We will have a water crawl and an up and over obstacle.  You should plan to get a little wet and muddy as you conquer this course! 

See you on Saturday, September 22nd!
