When my friend Michelle Jones, mother of a child with Cerebal Palsy, came back from a race in Austin where she completed a 5K in his every day wheel chair and told me about Ainsley's Angels - I knew right then and there this was something I was ready to jump in both feet and join in!
I have 2 strong legs, and it brings me much joy to help others who aren't physically able to experience the excitement of endurance races on their own. I have found a new passion and purpose for running - and I want to help others experience what I have been able to experience personally for nearly 10 years now. Ainsley's Angels provides such opportunities by pairing up able bodied walkers/runners (Angels) with less than mobile Captains and helps them feel the wind in their face as they are included in participating in endurance events such as 5K and 10K road races.
Please help my family provide a chair for a Captain - so that they can take part in this organization! Our group have already been blessed by many donations - but we continue to get more and more Captains! (This is a GOOD thing!) I want all of our Captains be able to participate as often as they can - I don't want anyone to be turned away at a race because we don't have enough chairs - please help us by raising funds for one chair!
This organization is a blessing to my family - it is a way we can participate together, some of us running as an Angel, some helping set up race day, and some taking photographs - all of our Hathaway 5 get to be part of this awesome group!
Help us let these Captains Roll with the Wind in Corpus Christi, Texas!
*our goal of of $2500 would provide a convertable cycling/running chair which would allow our family to participate in multisport events - not just road races - but cycling and triathlons. These events we can do as a family team!
