Ainsley’s Angels

All proceeds from the race go to Ainsley’s Angels of America – a nationwide nonprofit that works tirelessly to raise awareness about the special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. The organization is named in honor of Ainsley Rossiter, a Virginia native who passed away from Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy in 2016. Running was a source of respite and bonding for Ainsley and her family as she battled her terminal illness. Today, Ainsley’s Angels carries on her memory through a series of races in 60 cities across 30 states, all of which help raise funds and awareness while providing educational opportunities about the special needs community.
