BENEFITING: AINSLEYSANGELS OF AMERICA
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2016
UPDATE 05/17/16 - We reached our initial goal of $7500 so fast. Everyone who helped us has a special place in our heart. Thank you so much!! But we still have over 3 months to go. So we figured why stop at one chair....let's raise enough money to buy at least one more chair to give the gift of mobility to another person. That is exactly what we are going to so. More chairs, more people, more inclusion, more smiles!!!!
Team Smile and Roll is led by an absolutely wonderful person, Brandon Rizzuti. Brandon has Cerebral Palsy but that has never slowed him down or dampened his spirit. He is a high school graduate, works for Walgreen's, serves on the Board of Directors for the Arc of NC and is always the happiest person in the room. At 28 years old, Brandon has accomplished a significant amount in his life. If you run a half marathon in the Raleigh, NC area there is a good chance you will see his smiling face.
Even with all Brandon has accomplished, there is always going to be the next "challenge." Half-marathoner....check! Full-marathoner....check! Ultra-marathoner...check! Now it's time for Brandon to take things to the next level. With his friend, Mark, they will run across (north to south) the great state of NC. Starting in Virgilina, VA and ending at South of the Border, SC, the pair will run to raise money for Ainsley's Angels in Central Carolina. The ultimate goal is to raise enough money to donate a custom running chariot (like Brandon's) to a lucky person along the way. Running 162 miles in 4 days is just so "Brandon." Dream big!!
