I'm Veronica and I'm an Angel that runs with the Captains with Ainsley's Angels of South Texas. While I've always enjoyed running, I thought I'd push myself in a new way and run with individuals of all ages that would not normally be able to run in 5k's, 10k's, half marathons, etc. Running with Ainsley's Angels is such an amazing organization I am proud to be a part of. The smiles on the Captains faces and hearing them laugh and get excited to feel the wind rush past them is one of the most priceless moments you'll ever hear and see. Knowing these individuals are a part of society that they might not normally have the chance to parttake in is even more amazing, inspiring, and humbling.
I invite you to come check us out! We typically have practice runs at least once a week. We will also be holding a virtual tour in August! If you are willing to run as an Angel and push our Captains, we can definitely use you! If you know of an individual that can serve as a Captain, we also invite you to come check us out and see what we're all about! This is such a great opportunity for the community to become aware that Ainsley's Angels of South Texas exists and help build acceptance for our differences.
All funds donated will help our team purchase a racing chair for a Captain.
