What are some of your best memories? Running around on the playground? Shrieking across the soccer field, lacing up your skates for an early morning practice or sliding into home base? Maybe going on an out trip with your buddies, sailing in the summer or ice fishing in the winter? Think about gliding over the ice, hanging upside-down on the monkey bars or going for an epic bike ride. So many of the happy memories and moments of life centre around movement and connection with other people, but for kids and adults with disabilities those opportunities are often significantly limited by their physical realities.
It turns out that doesn’t have to be the end of the story! My Team Triumph Canada works to pair people with disabilities (Captain’s) with able-bodied runners (Angels), and, using specially designed racing chairs, break down some of the barriers to movement for those with disabilities.
Providing these chairs and paying for race entry fees and logistics can add up real quick, creating new barriers! That's why we reach out to donors just like you who are passionate about inclusion, racing and community to help us cover the costs needed for each of our events.
This year we have set our sights on seven different races (and counting!) But the number of race entries and participants we can have will depend in part on our amazing sponsors and donors!
Please use this page to donate to myTeam Triumph Canada directly. Or, if you would rather, please connect with your favourite Angel or Captain to support them directly:
Thanks so much for your generosity!
