BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH INC
Welcome to Captain Jerry's fundraising page for myTEAM TRIUMPH - Angels of Georgia!
On September 13, 2014 Jerry will "Captain" a team of "Angels" through the ConnectAbilities 5K/10K Road Race.
The jogging stroller that Captain Jerry will be riding in has been borrowed for this race, so we are raising funds for the purchase of a chair for the Angels of Georgia Chapter so that Captain Jerry and others with special needs can continue to experience the thrill of racing in Georgia.
This equipment is very specialized and costs over a $1,000 per chair ($2,500 for the ones that convert to a bike trailer). All donations will be used to purchase and maintain jogger chairs so that no one will be left on the sidelines!
What is myTEAM TRIUMPH?
myTEAM TRIUMPH is an athletic ride-along program created for children, teens, adults and veterans with disabilities who would not normally be able to experience outdoor endurance events such as triathlons or road races.
We were inspired by Rick Hoyt, who after being pushed through his first race by his father said "Hey Dad, when we're racing it feels like my disability disappears".
There are thirty-five myTEAM TRIUMPH chapters around world including the Angels of Georgia Chapter (formerly the Northwest Georgia Chapter). myTEAM TRIUMPH is a 501(c)3 Charity so donations are deductable as allowed by law.
