BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
Welcome to the fundraising page dedicated to getting a new Push Chair for Blaize, hosted by Ainsley’s Angels.
With your generosity and assistance, we aim to ensure Blaize receives a brand new Freedom Push Chair before 2014! Trust me, as the father of a very special girl named Ainsley, the positive energy surrounding the start line, the togetherness of every member preparing to "roll with the wind", the fearlessness of the athletes, the normalcy of the family, and the love we all have for each other is a therapy like no other.
Meet Blaize Chiles, he is a runner, don't believe me just ask Blaize. This is a picture of him finishing a Boston Memorial 4.19 mile run that he did without any help, yes he was last but he finished. Blaize loves to race with his family and Mom and Dad push him whenever they can. He has done several 5K races and even an 8K with Team Hoyt VB and Ainsley’s Angels. Blaize likes being out front at the beginning of the races and cheers Mom and Dad to go faster. Mom and Dad have completed a few half marathons and would like to start training with Blaize so they can feel comfortable pushing him in these longer races as well. Running is a family event for the Chiles family and we would like your help to include Blaize in every aspect of this as well.

Who is Ainsley?
Ainsley does not talk or walk; she does not play for fun; but she smiles, while out for a run. An inspiration to thousands, she is an amazing little girl with a smile that will light up any room. Shortly after being diagnosed with an extremely rare progressive genetic nerve disorder called Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD), Ainsley completed the Surfer's Healing Virginia Beach 5K road race. Her first of many running-aided, wind-induced smiles took our family's collective breath away as she received her finisher's medal and became an official Team Hoyt Virginia Beach (THVB) ATHLETE! Inspired by Dick and Rick Hoyt, and the only running team authorized by the Hoyt's to use their name, THVB provided Ainsley's family with a therapeutic means to fight the devastation associated with learning and trying to live with the fact that your child has a terminal illness. The positive energy surrounding the start line, the children smiling from ear to ear, the togetherness of every member preparing to "roll with the wind", the fearlessness of the athletes, the normalcy of the family, and the love we all have for each other is a therapy like no other. In an effort to spread this amazing experience to as many people as possible, Ainsley's Angels aims to see other families experience what the Hoyt's have experienced over 1100 times and what we have experienced nearly 60 times (so far). As such, we aim to ensure others can "roll with the wind" and live up to the philosophy of, "Yes You Can."
