Join Us for the Anniversary Ball on Friday, December 14!

Ainsley’s Angels in SENC is celebrating our two year anniversary in 2018, not only by hosting our annual Anniversary Ball at the Blockade Runner Beach Resort, but by also adding the Frosty 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run. Join us for these wonderful events and experience the joy demonstrated by each of our Angel Riders as they participate in events that most of us take for granted! Funds raised by the SENC ambassadorship are used to purchase and maintain equipment, including race chairs and supplies, and the trailer in which we use to transport chairs to various races in the area.

Our goal is to increase the number of chairs available to our ambassadorship so that more and more Athlete Riders can “roll with the wind!” You can help us to continue to spread the message of inclusion by registering for these “AAmazing” events, and even more by making an additional donation. Come out and experience the joy of inclusion with Ainsley’s Angels!

About the Cause

Ainsley’s Angels of America, Inc., is a nonprofit corporation with local ambassadors across the United States. The mission of Ainsley’s Angels, in addition to ensuring everyone can experience endurance events, is to build awareness about America’s special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. We believe everyone deserves to be included, and strive to serve as advocates to providing education and participating as active members in local communities.

The Southeast North Carolina (SENC) ambassadorship has been serving our community for nearly two years. There are limited opportunities for our special needs population to experience inclusion in everyday, typical activities, especially athletics. They are generally left on the sidelines to watch and cheer on their peers, and rarely get to participate. Our program promotes inclusion of the special needs population in all areas, but particularly in the area of endurance athletic events. Our Angel Riders get to feel the wind in their face, experience the thrill of the race, and for once get to be on the receiving end of the cheers.
