Aaron's Race and Roll :  "WHAT BOUNDARIES???"   I have had many health issues and surgeries over the years, and I have faced many challenges dealing with them. It has made me who I am today. After all I went through, I ended up finishing a triathlon in 2011 – I was the very last one to cross the finish line, people were packing up the cones and banners, but, in spite of everything, I finished it!        


I am a sophomore at Imagine International, and am putting together this race in my community called, "Aaron’s Race and Roll" it will be a 5k, 1k race to give kids/adults with challenges, disabilities, and issues, the chance to accomplish a goal!  I want kids/adults of all abilities to be able to Run this race, or Roll in this race – wheelchairs and crutches included! 

In order to make this happen, I need  YOU!  I am looking for Sponsors who will agree to help support me to get this race together. It is my project – I am meeting with Sponsors, creating the event, and doing the work.  If you would be interested in Sponsoring this event, YOUR logo will go on the T-shirts and all proceeds will go to ManeGait – an organization that helps kids and people of all ages with disabilities to go beyond their boundaries and to do more than they think they can do. To find out more about ManeGait, click on this link: http://www.manegait.org/ . I would like to meet with you personally to show you my vision and sign you up!  

My message is, "WHAT BOUNDARIES??? YOU CAN."  I want these kids/adults to feel that same sense of accomplishment at finishing something hard just like I did and to give back to the many, many people who have helped us along the way.

I want to get the word out to people of all abilities in the Collin County Area, to the Special Olympics, the MISDs, to the parents of kids with disabilities, the hospitals, the volunteers, the athletes… everyone! So if you know someone… please give me a call at 469-307-4531!
