We are running our first 5K!!!
And Christian will be our "Captain."
Let me explain...
MyTeam Triumph is an organization that makes it possible for children, teens, adults, and veterans who have disabilities to participate in endurance events they wouldn't normally be able to participate in. Participants are referred to as "Captains" and they ride along in a special wheelchair pushed by "Angels" who help them cross the finish line.
Here's a short clip of where this all started with Rick and Dick Hoyt. I dare you not to be inspired...
(I retold the story of this video and I got goosebumps just retelling it again.)
Friends of ours have recently brought myTeam Triumph to Southern Arizona! And there will be a 5K race on September 17th. Do you know what this means? This means Christian gets to participate in his first race as a Captain! And Mommy and Daddy are going to be his "Angels!" (Even though he really is the Angel in this story.)
Because myTeam Triumph is new to Southern Arizona, we are raising funds to help provide the special adapted equipment for Christian and his friends to participate in this race. Please consider donating by visiting our fundraising page!
We have been blessed by donations from family, friends, and readers in the past for Christian's therapies, but there is something extra special about your contribution, should you decide to donate. It will not only help Christian participate, but it will provide the necessary adapted equipment for many kids just like Christian in future events! You'll not only be helping Christian, but other kids and adults with disabilities, too! Even if it's just $5, every little bit helps!
I love the idea of this race because picturing Christian crossing a finish line gives me goosebumps...again.
I love the idea of this race because it gives Christian legs and helps him run.
I love the idea of this race because it will help more kids just like Christian and it goes far beyond this 5K race on September 17th.
Please help us reach our goal of $500!
Help Christian cross his very first finish line!
(Christian is doing fabulously, by the way!)
