My Team Triumph

Once again, Run For The STARS is pleased to partner with My Team Triumph - an athletic ride-along program created for children, adults, and veterans with disabilities who would normally not be able to experience the thrill of crossing the finish line. The participants with disabilities are called "Captains", and the athletes who have the honor of pushing and pulling the Captains on the course are their "Angels.”
