THE STORY:

Ainsley's Angels is thrilled to join forces with The Arc of Tri-Cities yet again to ensure that John "Chucky" Maugh and his friends can be included in the October 26th Tri-City Marathon!

Last year, John Maugh took the ride of his life: he raced in his first marathon. Chucky, as his family and friends know him, has severe cerebral palsy which confines him to a wheelchair he is incapable of self-propelling. Yet he was able to complete all 26.2 miles of the race course with the help of over two dozen volunteers and many generous donations. Runners from Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco each took turns guiding Chucky’s specialized push chair, and together they finished the race in just under 4 hours.

This year, Chucky will have some healthy competition. Thanks to community contributions, a second push chair was purchased last fall, and another racer will join Chucky at the starting line in October. Dominic Charvet also has cerebral palsy and is often seen in his wheelchair alongside his friend Chucky at local events. With the support of The Arc of Tri-Cities and Miguel Reyna, the race director, both young men and their volunteer “wheelchair propulsion” will navigate the course, which spans all three cities, and cross the finish line on the 26th.

Community Inclusion in All Aspects of Life

Ainsley's Angels is proud of The Arc of Tri-Cities committment to promoting awareness and inclusion for individuals with developmental disabilities throughout our community, and endurance races are no exception. In order to support future racers with the opportunity to feel the excitement and joy of completing a race and additional inclusive community programming, The Arc is seeking community sponsors. With the help of generous donations, more individuals with developmental disabilities will be able to actively participate in exciting community activities, such as the Tri-Cities Marathon.

If our race and our cause inspire you, please share this information with others to spread the word! 

Through your tax-deductible donations to this page, we will be able to purchase additional chairs for others to borrow from our friends at The Arc of Tri-Cities!

THANK YOU!
