Meet Team Mary Beth!!
Mary Beth has been a rider with Ainsley Angels for 3 years now. She never sleeps the night before an event in fear of missing out.
In December 2018 , we were given bad news regarding Mary Beth's heart. This has challenged us to make sure she can atteend as many events as possible. A race against time, so to speak.
Mary Beth is always thinking of others, putting everyone before herself. She asks for very little. Please help us in getting her to Washington for the Marine Corp Marathon.
Jessica has been running with Ainsley’s Angels for the past 6 years in Central Carolina and most recently has been working on completing a marathon in every state as part of the Ainsley’s Angels Fifty Gifts of Freedom Project. Jessica is thrilled to be returning to the Marine Corps Marathon to run with Ainsley’s Angels for the second time, and even more thrilled to be the feet for one of her best running friends, Mary Beth. Though Mary Beth and Jessica have run in numerous races together, this will be Mary Beth’s first full marathon! It is sure to be a spectacular race!
In addition to ensuring everyone can experience endurance events, Ainsley's Angels of America aims to build awareness about America's special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. WE are super excited to excute our mission at the Marine Corps Marathon as an offical charity partner this October!
