BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
Ainsley’s Angels and Team Team Running Chairs are thrilled to join forces with Miranda's family to ensure she can soon roll with the wind in a Custom Chair!
With your generosity, Miranda's brand new Freedom Push chair arrived at her home AND the goal for her CUSTOM CHAIR HAS BEEN REACHED!!! Her family is deeply touched by all of the amazing support and is excited to soon receive the new TEAM HOYT CUSTOM CHAIR!
Miranda loves hammocks and she is most comfortable when laying down or reclined, so this custom chair is the perfect fit! Her family does a Special Olympics 5K every year at Beaver Staduim at University Park and are looking forward to having the chair for this year's event! Also, plans are in the works for Miranda to earn the title Marathoner one day!!
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.

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 1100 times and what we have experienced over 55 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."
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
