Caitlin and her Mom found Ainsley’s Angels in 2015. Her first event was the Marine Corp Half marathon on the Camp Lejeune base and she currently rolls in about 20 races/year. Caitlin loves to be part of race day excitement and although she is nonverbal, she let’s everyone know with smiles and laughter how much she enjoys rolling fast! Mom initially watched and cheered from the sidelines but started running and increasing both number of races and distances over the past few years. The 44th MCM will be Caitlin’s 2nd full marathon but will be a first for Mom who will be a support runner for Team Caitlin! Please help Caitlin and her Mom accomplish our goal of finishing together.
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!
