BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH INC
Last year we formed the New Jersey Chapter of myTEAM TRIUMPH, the physically challenged ride-along program which helps those who never before dreamed it possible to enjoy the thrill of running races and triathlons. With the financial support of many we were able to purchase three hi-tech running chairs and with them break down the barriers between those who are physically challenged and those who are able-bodied and anxious to partner with these very deserving, brave individuals!
myTEAM TRIUMPH was inspired by Dick and Rick Hoyt, a father-son team who have completed 30+ Boston Marathons, six Ironman Triathlons, and countless other endurance events, gaining international prominence doing so. Dick pushed his son in his wheelchair in their first road race in 1977, and since then the two have been inspiring others worldwide.
The interest in our chapter from both the physically challenged and athletic Communities is enormous, and we could easily fill any number of running chairs each race. We wish to increase the number of ride-along competitors per race from the current three to many more, and are asking for your donation so we may expand our fleet of chairs (costing $1,200 each, wholesale) and serve many very worthy individuals for years to come.
myTEAM TRIUMPH is a registered 501(c) charitable organization, and any donation is tax-deductible.
With your help we will continue to build awareness and bridges between those blessed to compete in these races and our deserving physically challenged partners!
