Support The Triumph Mile
May 24, 2013
Individuals with disabilities will have an opportunity to participate in a 1-mile walk/run designed just for them as part of this year’s Bellin Run weekend events, and you can support their goal to participate!
This shorter course, called The Triumph Mile, winds around Astor Park, the main staging area for Bellin Run-related activities. It will take place at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 7 as part of the annual Bellin Run Health & Fitness Expo.
Participants (called captains) have mild disabilities and take part in the event with the aid of 1-3 able-bodied athletes (called angels).
“The goal of the event is to provide a health-enhancing and mentor-building opportunity for 100 individuals with disabilities by utilizing a team-based endurance athletic approach. We are also seeking 300 able-bodied athletes to walk and run with them giving them support and guidance,” said Christian Jensen, executive director for myTEAM TRIUMPH. His organization will coordinate the event with the support of the Bellin Run.
Jensen encourages all who plan to attend the Health & Fitness Expo to “give a good, solid cheer when you see The Triumph Mile participants out on the 1-mile course. That will further enhance the race experience for our special needs friends.”
The 37th annual Bellin Run 10K is at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 8. The 6.2-mile run/walk takes nearly 20,000 participants through the streets of Green Bay and Allouez.
