Ainsley's Angels of America is super excited to have our Ambassadors spreading our mission and bringing inclusive road racing to Tampa and Orlando Florida!

What does this mean? Well, enjoy this video!

Learn about the life event that inspired Ambassador Jodi to make this a reality:

I was introduced to Ainsley's Angels through the group 'I Run 4'. After visiting the website and viewing the videos, I knew I wanted to be involved in this group. Everything 'Ainsley's Angels' spoke to my heart. I didn't know how it was going to be possible because the closest chapter to me was Southern Alabama. I immediately joined Southern Alabama thinking I could travel there once or twice yearly.

And then something happened. One post on Facebook led to a little invitation. 72 hours later I was running down the Las Vegas Strip in the Las Vegas Marathon with Shaun and Shamus, Power to Push, earning my Ainsley's Angel wings. My head was spinning. Maybe because I got to meet Rooster in person, or possibly because I was star struck by Shaun and Shamus. Maybe it was the lights on the strip or all the prayers I said.... maybe it was all of it combined... 
The following day, when I finally exhaled, I knew Ainsley's Angels had to make it's way to Florida.  And here we are, Together We Shall!
