Team Derek

THE STORY:

Derek will be returning to the Marine Corps Marathon for the 3rd year in a row, but this time, he will be joined by his friend Michelle as they embark on their first marathon TOGETHER! Derek and Michelle have known each other since Derek was 3 years old, when he was a preschool student in Michelle's class. When the Ainsley's Angels in Eastern Carolina team was being formed back in 2012, Derek's family was one of the first families that Michelle contacted in order to get involved! Derek was one of the 5 original Angel Riders for Ainsley's Angels in Eastern Carolina at their debut race in Sept. 2012 and he has been "Rolling With the Wind" ever since! Derek has completed 5K's, 10K's, half marathons, and will complete his THIRD Marine Corps Marathon this October when he pulls Michelle for 26.2 miles throughout Washington, DC, which will be the longest distance that these two have done together!

EXCITING UPDATE:  Derek and Michelle will be joined by their good friend, Abbey Bruckner, of Chesapeake,VA  for this AAMAZING event!  Ms. Abbey is an avid Ainsley's Angels supported and Hamptom Roads team member, who also just happens to be a special education preschool teacher, like Michelle!  Abbey and Michelle ran together for the first time many years ago, in Ainsley's very first half marathon as part of "Team Ainsley" and they are so excited to join forces again, this time with Angel Rider Derek taking the lead!  

Please show your support as they fundraise not only for a charity race bib for each of them, but in supporting Ainsley's Angels of America, which is a cause that is so dear to all of their hearts!
