Together, six runners and one super driver & buddy runner will be covering over 200 miles as they race from Muskegon MI, to Traverse City MI. This year the team is returning fueled by the desire to run together and give back to one of the organizations that provides motivation and support to people of different abilities, empowering and enabling them to train and participate in mainstream athletic events.
TEAM 360 is an IRS section 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, based on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Their main goal is to work and train together with people who are differently abled so that they can take part in mainstream running and multisport events.
Their "wingmen" are volunteers who train and race with athletes who are differently abled. The relationship that exist between Wingman and Athlete is such a special one—it’s a unique bond that empowers and motivates everyone involved to live a more healthy lifestyle by being active together.
There are many different capacities in which you could be involved—they participate in everything from 5ks to marathons, biking events, and even triathlons.
Team 360 could not do what they do without amazing volunteers and donors. All of their members are vital to the success of their program and they’d love for you to become a part of their family!
