THE STORY:

Welcome to Captain Sydney's fundraising page for mTT: Ainsley's Angels of Southwest Louisiana!

A message from Sydney's Dad:

"Seven years old as for April 2013, Sydney attends Frash Elementary School in Sulphur, Louisiana. Sydney earned her Captain's metal on March 16, 2013 at the Free to Breathe 5K and followed right up with her second race a week later. She is truly enjoying the experience of racing, just as much as I am enjoying being able to do this with her. She is truly a blessing and I am so thankful to be her father. For many years I never thought this would be possible, but here we are making dreams happen. She brings her loving spirit and smile everywhere she goes. She is an inspiration to us all and a wonderful example of how we should all live our lives. Thank you for your support in this worthy cause!"

 

Since we currently do not have any membership fees for our Captains (those we push) or our Angels (those who push), our mission is dependent on support from sponsors like you. Among the things donations will be used for include: maintaining our enclosed equipment trailer; purchasing and maintaining jogger chairs; bike trailers, and boat rafts; ensuring all Captains never pay for a single event; and ensuring we can continue to provide for the best events possible for our Captains and their families! We also aim to support local special needs schools, programs, and organizations, while also planning an annual out-of-area trip/race for our special rider athletes.

 

You might be wondering, who is Ainsley?

Well, our organization's namesake 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 nearly 1100 times and what we have experienced over 40 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."
