What is Fusion Inclusion all about?

Fusion Inclusion is not just a movement. Fusion Inclusion is about movement.

It’s about making it possible for people with physical and cognitive challenges to participate in local races by giving them access to adaptive running chairs. Fusion Inclusion was started by Nic DeCaire and Steve Sinko to make it possible for everyone to cross the finish line at a race in Delaware, no matter their challenges.

Inclusion running offers many benefits, but right now it is an exception at most races. Many people, young and old, want to be included but their physical limitations keep them from participating.

So far, five chairs have been purchased at a cost of about $4,900 each through Team Hoyt Running Chairs. These chairs are named for the famous father-and-son running duo, Dick and Rick Hoyt, who ran the Boston Marathon 32 times. These chairs are lightweight, strong and comfortable.

Buffalo Wild Wings, STAR Health at the University of Delaware, Celebrate Love Always and Independence Prosthetics and Orthotics have teamed up with Fusion Inclusion to make these chairs available.

"Inclusion is important for our geriatric populations, too, and for caregivers. I want to join the conversation to make sure my grandmom and others are included to bring them a better quality of life."

“My favorite moment of the day was listening to Nicholas giggling when we were moving through the course. It was at that moment that I knew Fusion Inclusion made a difference for people with disabilities. They supported us as a family! Inclusion matters because everyone matters.”

"It was fun running the 10 miles through the eyes of Hayden. My buddy Hayden interacted with all the cheering volunteers and he loved to high five every Newark Police officers on course. The acceptance of all abilities is what differentiates running from every other sport including athletes that don’t have the ability to run. The Fusion 5 and Dime is living proof that running is the ultimate faith healer, restoring belief not only in oneself but life’s possibilities."
