BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
Hosted by Ainsley’s Angels, we welcome to what was the Chariot for Sarah fundraising page, but is now expanded to include her friend, Carl!
Due to your generosity, a brand new Freedom Push Chair was delievered to Sarah's house in August! SARAH AND HER MOM HAD A TALK.....they would like to continue to raise funds to purchase another chair to donate to another child. Meet Carl, or "C2" as we call him, LOVES hot wheels cars, has the cutest smile and freckles. His mom, Sarah, shares with us that when he goes out for a run he smiles big when the breeze hits his face and he sticks out his tongue like a puppy. Dogs and his siblings have been a big influence in his life - taught him to crawl, walk, smile and play. C2's family and friends are excited at the idea of him having his very own jogging chair and with your help, we know this can happen soon!
These chairs will allow Sarah and her friend to compete in local road races!! 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. I just know this is going to be a life changing event for this family.
YES YOU CAN, donate 10, 20 or 50 dollars right now to ensure Carl can join Sarah to roll with the wind and experience the thrill 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 over 1100 times and what we have experienced nealy 55 times (so far). As such, we created multiple public charities to ensure others can "roll with the wind" and live up to the philosophy of, "Yes You Can."
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
