BENEFITING: AINSLEYSANGELS OF AMERICA
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
Never in a million years would I have ever thought that I would train to do a marathon. Actually, on numerous occasions I said I would never do one. However, this wonder young lady and her mother push me outside my comfort zone all the time. Just a year ago, I was struggling to run even a 5K on my own, but now, THANKS to the two of them, I help push Adelynn for 5ks, 10ks and 13.1. They introduced me to a group called Ainsley's Angels. I now have a purpose bigger than my own to run these distances. INCLUSION!!!!! I help Adelynn and many other central Mississippians do things that they would not normally be able to do on their own. Each has their own story, but each one brings me such joy. I look forward to each and every race with these amazing athletes. Now this year, I am asking for your help in getting me to Washington, D.C. to run with the Marines while using my legs so that another gets to "run/roll" as well. I thank you from the bottom of my heart in helping me reach this goal.
