BENEFITING: AINSLEYSANGELS OF AMERICA
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
I am partnering with Ainsley's Angels to run for others in the Marine Corps Marathon and the DC Ragnar Relay! The only way I am able to participate is with your help! I first began running in 2011 after being dared by a friend, but it has since become a passion. This will be my second marathon (first MCM!) and first Ragnar relay.
Ainsley's Angels has been an inspiration to me because it is a community where we, who physically endure long miles, become the legs for those who are not able. Seeing the smiles of the athlete-riders, can make anyone’s heart melt! This group helps those who may never take a step on their own experience inclusiveness and freedom through running in special chairs and seats. I know that this charity has been an answer to prayer for many families who have wanted their loved ones to enjoy what others can!
Your donation would help support both the national organization and our local Ansley's Angels chapter. I have participated in smaller local events with them already. I would be greatly touched by your support of me in this effort. Please check out http://www.ainsleysangels.org for more information on this fantastic organization and their work around the country. Their mission: "In addition to ensuring everyone can experience endurance events, Ainsley's Angels of America aims to build awareness about America's special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. Serving as advocates to providing education and participating as active members in local communities, we believe everyone deserves to be included." Roll with the Wind!
Thanks for your consideration!
