This is an Active Fundraiser that directly benefits the purchase of Jogger Chairs for Thumbs Up International!
The Ainsley's Angels of America Foundation is trilled to partner with Thumbs Up International to work towards a goal of 10 jogger chairs to ensure at least 10 rider-athletes can experience the joys of road racing and of crossing the finish line!
With your assistance, we know we can acheive our mission!
Limitations are a mindset. Like Ainsley's Angels, ThumbsUp seeks to change our attitudes about limitations by embracing life's challenges. ThumbsUp takes on difficulties and turn them into experiences of a lifetime by matching adaptive and able bodied athletes to cross a finish line neither can get to on their own.
ThumbsUp participated in it's first experience in April of 2014 at the South Beach Triathlon. Since then, we have been present in 14 other races from 5ks to endurance swims, to a marathon (with a course wheelchair record of 4:15). Our goal is to expand in 2015 to include more adaptive athletes in the experiences we provide. We want to ensure that anyone in South Florida wanting to cross a swim, bike, run or triathlon finish line but is unable to do so independently gets to do it. It's a lofty goal but we are not intimidated. The only limitation we have is equipment and have teamed up with Ainsley's Angels to purchase additional jogger chairs. Together, #WeAreLimitLess.
