Rolling in Arkansas!

We are just getting started in Western Arkansas, having completed our third 5k on Nov. 4 in Fort Smith. Our goal is to participate in at least one race (5k, 10k, Half, Marathon) a month in the River Valley or Northwest Arkansas. There are five ways that you can help us to keep rolling in Arkansas to fulfill our mission of inclusion and joy.

  1. Recruit or Become an Angel Runner

    We need runners (any age and any pace as long as you can complete a 5k without walking). Runners check our website for upcoming races. If you are interested in being an Angel Runner for a particular race, simply contact Jarrett Banks at nwarkansas@ainsleysangels.org.

  2. Recruit or Become an Athlete Rider

    We need riders (any age as long as an exceptional need is present that prevents the rider from completing a 5k). Riders always participate in races for free. Medals are usually given after the race.

  3. Recruit or Become a Guardian Angel

    We need volunteers who want to help us with our mission. We need people to help with Thank You Notes, accounting of donations, fund-raising, maintenance of equipment, inventory, and transportation. We also need help in contacting race directors to receive permission to participate in upcoming races.

  4. Donate

    We need funds to purchase more chairs, an equipment trailer and merchandise that we sell or give to our Athlete Riders.

 

Please contact Jarrett at 252-414-9229 or at nwarkansas@ainsleysangels.org if you think you have what it takes to be an Angel! Our next scheduled race is the Tulsa Route 66 Half Marathon on November 19.
