Help Addie Ray Racing get a Racing Wheelchair!

This is Addie. She is our 13 year old daughter with Angelman Syndrome. Addie LOVES to race! Triathlons, running, cycling, you name it! The faster we go, the more she laughs!

Addie’s disability comes with its share of problems. She has very significant developmental delays, seizures, scoliosis, and little to no communication. This makes it impossible for Addie to race under her own power.

A few years ago, Chris (her daddy) and I had a dream to run a few races with her. Over the years, our dream has turned into something HUGE! We now have Addie Ray Racing where we get to race with Addie and with other differently able children too!

On the morning of June 23rd, we had two differently abled athlete teams racing the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon. We were trying so hard to get everything ready for both teams! Chris pulled into the parking garage, Addie’s Racing stroller hit the roof, and was snapped completely in two. We have never been more heartbroken. Listening to my husband cry like that was the most gut wrenching moment of my life. Racing is the only time Addie ever laughs and lights up like that!

Please help our little girl get back to racing! She and her daddy have a dream to race Ironman Wisconsin in 2024! This new stroller is just what they need to do that! 

Please, please, share this with everyone you know! Every little bit helps us reach our goal!
