IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THE 2020 AINSLEY’S ANGELS RACE SERIES AND COVID-19
Updated: 4/27/2020

Dear Ainsley’s Angels Family:

Over the last two months, Ainsley’s Angels of America has been following COVID-19 developments closely as it is impacting every state across the county in which we Roll With The Wind. With ambassadorships across the nation, as a nonprofit we are making the safest and smartest decisions to better the lives of our riders, runners and volunteers.

The health and safety of our riders, runners, volunteers and spectators is the top priority for Ainsley’s Angels of America. Due to the impact and development of coronavirus (COVID-19) and under the directive of national, state and local health experts and officials, several updates have been made for the Ainsley’s Angels Race Series.

We know that you are disappointed as much as we are. Tireless hours of planning, partnerships, logistics and dollars have gone into all events. We are saddened that multiple riders will be unable to Roll With The Wind and that some runners will no longer be able to earn their angel wings in what was set to be a monumental day. We also know that you have been training hard for our events. It was not a decision we took lightly.

Despite this disappointing news, Together, We Shall continue to move forward and celebrate virtually by logging miles and earning incredible medals in the safety of our home, all while supporting local ambassadorships across the nation.

We appreciate the support of our running community through this rapidly evolving situation and hope you will continue to spread the message of inclusion in the months to come.

Together, We Shall get through this difficult time, and we will continue to spread the message of inclusion.

Stay safe,

Laura Shuler
Vice President of Race Operations
Ainsley's Angels of America
