MyTEAMTRIUMPH Starts Year with 5K Run

NEWS

Exercise and charity, some New Year resolutions are off to a good start for myTEAM TRIUMPH who began the new year with a 5K run from Arena park, and they did it for a cause. The organization helps those with disabilities take part in runs such as this. Those who are unable to run earn the title of ‘Captain’, and ride in 3-wheeled racing chairs with volunteers taking turns to assist them. Around 185 participates showed up New Year’s Day to take in the brisk fun run, or the more rigorous 5K.  MyTEAM TRIUMPH had 14 Captains, and 65 ‘angels’ included in the run. Afterwards the runners all enjoyed fresh, warm pancakes in the Arena building, cooked by volunteers.
