BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
Welcome to the Chariot for Amber Fundraising page! Ainsley's Angels are thrilled to help ensure Amber can roll with the wind in comfort and with your generosity, we are certain this can happen soon! As the father of two very special girls that race together with me, I know that 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 family, and the love we all have for each other is a therapy like no other.
A message from Amber’s parents:
We are the proud parents of 3 beautiful children. Amber, our oldest daughter, was born 5 weeks early resulting in a Grade IV IVH (brain bleed) which resulted in her having various diagnosis', with Cerebral Palsy being her primary diagnosis. Amber is wheelchair dependent, has some limited speech and relies on an Augmentative Communication Device. Although Amber may have special needs, we try to live our lives to the fullest. Amber is kept active by participating in T-ball, cheerleading and Girl Scouts! She loves every opportunity that is given to her that allows her to participate in various events/sports. While we are new to wanting to join the running scene, we are so excited! We have participated in two 5K Run/Walks and the smile on Amber's face gives so much motivation to want to take part in more runs. Unfortunately, her current wheelchair and stroller are hindering our abilities to participate in future races because they are not designed for running or for use on various surfaces.
Having a Freedom Push Chair for Amber will allow her to enjoy and participate in activities that we can all enjoy as a family. The freedom to run while allowing Amber to feel the wind on her face, the freedom to stroll the beach and the ability to participate in future road races would all be made possible with this chair.
