Disabled But Not Really has an ambitious vision for your charitable generosity

An inclusive gym model that creates a blended space

Wesley Hamilton , and Disabled But Not Really have implemented an innovative gym model. It’s a gym that enables those with disabilities to work out alongside their loved ones. This hybrid model is the first of its kind and we’re just getting started. DBNR’s goal is to innovate a model that can be adopted by gyms (and beyond) to create blended spaces that are inviting for everyBODY!

We have a starting goal of $250,000 for this initiative. More money goes to our causes when you give directly, but if you’d like to be sure your dollar is going to this gym project specifically, there is a GoFundMe page as well. 

#HelpMeFit sponsored athletes and mobile

Your contributions can help us fund the #HelpMeFitChallenge athletes and set them on the path to a new life. Without these scholarships, some individuals would not even consider what is possible. Our previous athletes have achieved great things. And perhaps even more important, they have built a community where they continue to encourage each other to be the best versions of themselves.


The best way we can reach DBNR athletes is through the community. That’s why we aim to travel across the country with our HelpMeFit Mobile, but first, we need the vehicle. You can give directly or view our GoFundMe.

Corporate events are a great way to get involved.

Is your company or organization willing to support Disabled But Not Really through fundraising events, percent nights, or discounts? Let’s initiate a partnership! Charity initiatives boost both our brands and messages while achieving a common goal. Contact us today and learn more about DBNR partnership opportunities.
