Welcome to Team Kevin Strive

You can do anything if you just TRI!

About Us

What We Do


 Team Kevin Strive's goal is to provide opportunities to those with special needs who want the thrill of racing by providing the "Pit Crew" and the racing chairs for 5k, half marathons, marathons and triathlons.   




To build awareness, showing that everyone can be a participant, regardless of disability, in anything that they choose. Being disabled doesn't mean that you cannot achieve goals. 

About Us



Team Kevin Strive started when Kim Hansen entered herself and her son Kevin in a race.   What started as something special that Kevin and Kim could share together is now  a much larger endeavor.

We want other special needs athletes to have as much fun as Kevin!

How You Can Help:


On race day, "Pit Crew" help is needed.  The Pit Crew has many different roles.  They help assemble the equipment and help to check in the volunteers and athletes.  

We need volunteers to push the chairs in our running races, swim with the boats in our triathlons and also pull the bike chairs in our triathlons. We have a team for each athlete.  One volunteer leads and the other volunteers are spotters.

Please contact us for more information!
