Become an Angel
If you are looking to offer your athletic abilities so that others can Triumph, myTEAM TRIUMPH wants you!
myTEAM TRIUMPH Angels are the athletes who selflessly serve by guiding their Captain through a race. myTEAM TRIUMPH Captains are individuals with disabilities who may not be able to participate in an endurance event without the assistance of an Angel.
myTEAM TRIUMPH fields teams of able bodied athletes (Angels) and individuals with disabilities (Captains) in the greatest endurance events around! Each team is comprised of 3-5 Angels and one Captain. Team Angels typically take turns pushing their Captain in a given race.
Why a team? First, we want our Captains to safely cross the finish line. Second, it’s our mission to create enriching experiences, and 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 and help us fundraise. This fundraising supports (typically):
Race entry for your Captain. We provide free opportunities for Captains.
