In 2018, while running the Philadelphia Love Run, my friend and I noticed groups of jubilant runners pushing individuals in racing chairs. Seeing them run, cheer, and laugh brought joy to my heart. The riders’ eyes were filled with delight and pleasure, and my heart swelled with gratitude for the runners pushing them. I had to know who these people were. My friend and I talked with some of the runners, and I knew that I needed to learn more about Ainsley’s Angels.
Ainsley’s Angels is an incredible organization that aims to give everyone the opportunity to experience endurance events and build awareness about the special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. The belief that everyone deserves to be included is true to my heart as I deeply believe we are all One, regardless of our outward appearance or physical abilities. With the support of each other, we can do anything!
After reaching out to Ainsley’s Angels and joining the family, I was so thrilled and excited to find out I had the opportunity to run the Marine Corps Marathon as an Angel Runner!! Having the chance to run with these amazing athlete runners and riders is a profound blessing! Thank you so much for supporting me and this truly remarkable organization!! Together we shall :)
