BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2013
The RAIL Group’s mission is to help clients develop the strategy, motivation, and accountability required to succeed in their business communities. In this fundraiser, we are supporting our friends at Ainsley’s Angels of America.
Ainsley’s Angels of America (AAA) is athletic ride-along programs created for children, teens, adults and veterans with disabilities who normally would not be able to experience endurance events such as triathlons or road races. AAA is inspired by Ainsley Rossiter, who was diagnosed with Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD) in 2007. INAD is a rare, devastating, progressively terminal illness that has left Ainsley with global paralysis at the age of 9.
AAA is a volunteer-based service that provides jogger chairs, bike trailers and rafts for anyone who is disabled (Known as Captains) and runners (Known as Angels) to push them in endurance events. Their inspiration comes from a smile, one that is induced by the breeze that bows across Ainsley’s face while being pushed during a run.
Ainsley is the daughter of Kim and Lori Rossiter. Kim is a Major in the United States Marine Corps stationed in Virginia Beach, VA. Kim and Lori have three beautiful children: Briley, Ainsley, and Kamden.
