Become an Angel
If you are looking to offer your athletic abilities so that others can Triumph, myTEAM TRIUMPH Canada wants you!!!
On myTEAM TRIUMPH, Angels are the athletes who serve their Captain selflessly by fundraising and guiding their Captain with a disability through a race.
With myTEAM TRIUMPH, Angels have the honor of running WITH those they benefit! We field as many as 10 teams of able bodied and challenged athletes in the greatest endurance events around! Each team is composed of 3-5 Angels and one Captain.
Each of these team members take turns in a given race pushing their Captain. Why a team? First, we want our Captains to safely cross the finish line. Second, it’s our mission to build lasting, authentic relationships between people of all abilities. So get two of your friends together and commit to making a difference!
If you don’t have others to run with, no worries! myTEAM TRIUMPH will do our best to pair you up with other ability-matched angels during registration.
myTEAM TRIUMPH hosts regular training events prior to race day. Angels must attend at least one training event prior to race day. The purpose of team training events is to help build a relationship with the captain and other angels, and to acclimate yourself to guiding the captain safely.
Team Angels Are Encouraged to Fundraise
We ask Team Angels to pay race entry fees where applicable* and fundraise. This fundraising supports:
Race entry for your Captain. We provide free opportunities for Captains.
Team shirt for yourself and the Captain
Pre race camp food for entire team
Race day hospitality
Our continued mission
* We work with race directors to reduce or remove race entry fees wherever possible for our Angels. If the cost of the race entry fee is prohibitive for you but you are passionate about being an Angel, please get in touch and we can advise which races would be best to sign up for.
To encourage participation for as many people as possible while also continuing to reach our fundraising goals we have four categories of Angels. We provide a personalized fundraising page for each Angel, and fundraising efforts are tallied over the course of each season.
Bronze Angel - $100: As a member of an Angel Team, your fundraising efforts will go towards covering the cost of race entry for your Captain, and a team shirt for yourself and your Captain.
Silver Angel - $250: As a member of an Angel Team, your fundraising efforts will go towards covering the cost of race entry for your Captain, and a team shirt for yourself and your Captain. You will also allow us to cover some of the additional race day costs.
Gold Angel - $500: As a member of an Angel Team, your fundraising efforts will go towards covering the cost of race entry for your Captain, a team shirt for yourself and your Captain, additional race day costs as well as contributing towards our continued mission. A team of three Gold Angels will contribute enough to purchase one racing chair, and the opportunity to dedicate your chair in honour of the Captain of your choice.
Platinum Angel - $1000+: If you are interested in deeper experience by being a one-on-one Angel for a Captain in an event, we can support you! This experience is open for select races and slightly different than a Team Angel. To express interest in a Platinum Angel experience, please contact us!

Post event meal and time with your Captain on race day.
For those donating $1500+, the opportunity to dedicate a new chair in honour of the Captain of your choice.
