THE STORY:

UPDATE:  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!  Click to see the news video STORY!

-----------------------------------------------

Ainsley’s Angels is thrilled to help ensure Katelyn soon roll with the wind in her very own Freedom Push Chair.  We have teamed up with her Angel and friend, Brianna, on a Top Secret mission to get the Racing Chair presented to Katelyn at an upcoming road race that the two of them team up to complete.  With Brianna behind Katelyn every step of the way, we know this team is unstoppable!

 

With your generosity, we are certain this can happen before the 2013 racing season is complete in mid-December. 

As the father of two very special girls that race together, Ainsley and Briley, I know that the positive energy surrounding the start line, 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. I just know this is going to be a life changing event for these friends!

 

A message from Brianna's family:

"Brianna runs with Katelyn, 12 year old Swansboro Middle School student.  Brianna’s homeroom class worked with students in Katelyn’s class during this past school year.  Brianna was only supposed to go help once a week, but somehow she weaseled in to working with the class 5 days each week, three of those days solely with Katelyn.  Katelyn’s mother, Lisa, mentioned one day that Michelle (the President of Ainsley's Angels of Eastern Carolina) had emailed her about Ainsley’s Angels and that she wasn’t able to run with Katelyn, nor did she have anyone else that would.  So Brianna volunteered to run with Katelyn.  The two of them have since run with Ainsley's Angels in the Marine Chevrolet Shuffle 5k and the Run for Wounded Warriors 5k, both here in Jacksonville, NC.  We started thinking that it would be really cool if Katelyn had her very own jogging chair and mentioned to Michelle, the idea of pursuing a fund-raising effort to purchase one.  Brianna is proud to be an Ainsley’s Angel here in Eastern North Carolina and our family has gained so much from being a part of two separate 5k runs."

 

The rest is history and we are now on this TOP SECRET MISSION (or at least trying to keep a secret from Katelyn) and need your help.  YES YOU CAN, donate 10, 20 or 50 dollars right now to ensure the thrill of rolling with the wind and crossing a road race finish line!
