BENEFITING: MyTeam Triumph Inc., Wings of Pheonix
EVENT DATE: Mar 24, 2013
When you find something that calls to you, you go with it! This year, 3 separate groups- myTEAM TRIUMPH, ONE Multisport, and Destination Kona- put their heads together to figure out a fun way to help individuals with severe disabilities experience triathlons in the Valley of the Sun.
What became was the Destination Kona ONE Run for Angels, a free community event that would promote awareness of myTEAM TRIUMPH Wings of Phoenix and raise money so that the nonprofit can participate in a triathlon for the first time this year. The event is free and open to runners of all abilities but we ask that you give what you can! Donations may be eligible for a tax-deduction.
myTEAM TRIUMPH is a nationwide non-profit that facilitates teams of athletes and disabled riders to experience races of nearly any kind of distance, from 5Ks and marathons to duathlons and triathlons. Inspired by Team Hoyt, the nonprofit uses sepcialize equipment to push, pull, and tow disabled Captains by Angels (athlete volunteers). The result is empowered families and motivated athletes that show the community that through team work, ANYTHING is possible. Check out this video from the 12Ks of Christmas!
ONE Multisport is an athletic club that has provides a steady pool of Angels for myTEAM TRIUMPH Wings of Phoenix races. The mission of ONE Multisport is to provide athletes of all ages and abilities a vehicle for information, support, friendship, training and racing activities as well as social activities for families to enjoy. ONE provides a safe, healthy and positive environment for all athletes.
Destination Kona is more than a store for triathletes, it's a resource for training, advice, and nutrition, empowering athletes to achieve their goals and asks, "What are YOU capable of?"
