THE STORY:

Welcome to the Chariot for Patrick fundraising page, hosted by mTT: Ainsley’s Angels, on behalf of Patrick's Mom.

 

UPDATE:  Wow!!! You did it! Pat will be getting his new running wheelchair!! It never ceases to amaze me to see such an outpouring of support every time we need it! What a wonderful, caring group of people we are fortunate to have in our lives! Not only will Pat be fitted for his new chair, but there are now extra funds to help other individuals get chairs as well! Thanks to you all!
Much Love from
Marianne, John, Pat, Megan, Kevin and Anne Killelea

 

 

 

With your generosity, Patrick’s mother, Marianne, aims to raise enough money to purchase a custom made TEAM HOYT Racing Chair for Patrick! This chair will allow him to compete in local road races, while being pushed by Marianne! Trust me, as the father of a very special girl named Ainsley, the 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 the family, and the love we all have for each other is a therapy like no other.  I just know this is going to be a life changing event for this family.

Here is a special message from Marianne:

My name is Marianne Killelea.  My son Patrick was 22 years old when he suffered a severe brain injury which has left him 100% dependent.  He has locked in syndrome, which allows him to be totally cognitive of his surroundings but he cannot communicate in any way.  I would love to run with him but I have not been able to find a wheelchair suitable for me to run behind…until now!  We appreciate any support you may provide. Thank you!

 

YES YOU CAN, donate 10, 20 or 50 dollars right now to ensure Patrick can soon roll with the wind in his face as he experiences the trill of crossing a road race finish line!

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 nearly 1100 times and what we have experienced over 40 times (so far). As such, we created this chapter of myTEAM Triumph to ensure others can "roll with the wind" and live up to the philosophy of, "Yes You Can."
