10th Anniversary Sportable Tailgate, presented by Dominion Energy

For 15 years, Sportable has been providing opportunities to people of all ages with physical disabilities and visual impairments to participate in sports. From cycling and tennis to wheelchair basketball and rugby, our athletes have participated in a range of activities. 

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Sportable Tailgate and it will be our Throwback Edition! We are throwing it back in honor of our very first Tailgate held in 2012 at the home of one of our most ardent supporters. We are bringing the Tailgate back “home” and asking you to consider hosting your own party between September 17 – October 3 either in-person or virtually. There will be plenty of incentives for our fundraisers from party support to special perks for the most money raised.

If you can’t host an event this year, please consider supporting someone else’s Tailgate Fundraiser and/or purchase your own limited-edition, vintage 10th Anniversary Sportable Tailgate T-shirt.



“I tailgate for the athletes and teammates that I have gained over the many years that I have been involved with Sportable. I also tailgate to be involved with competitive athletics at its finest and that is what Sportable offers me. I also tailgate for the opportunity to get other people with all kinds of disabilities out into a physical environment where they can gain exercise, confidence, and enthusiasm around their sport or exercise. WHY DO YOU TAILGATE?”

Matthew Shapiro, Sportable Athlete
