A successful team beats with ONE heart
Captains are the reason Team RunFree exists. They are individuals who have special needs and are physically unable to run. Ages range from four up into adult years. Captains ride in special adaptive run carts as our Navigators race with them in 5K, 10K, half marathons and even full marathons. This allows them to have a fully immersive running experience.
A Team RunFree Navigator is the 'engine' of each race team. They provide the leg power and steer their Captain through races and other fun runs. Navigators must be more than just runners. We look for those who have a true passion to share fun times and 'miles of smiles' with their Captain. The race may end at the finish line, but the relationships and memories continue.
We are blessed with a great board of directors. Our board is comprised of men and women with varied backgrounds, careers and skills. Some are runners, some are directly connected with the special needs community and others bring much needed business experience to our team. The common thread is that each is committed to help Team RunFree be successful in serving the special needs community.
Their skills, experiences, wisdom and backgrounds combine to create a team which brings great vision to our adaptive running organization. The integrity of this team assures that Team RunFree manages our resources in the best possible way. Their wisdom helps us operate in a way that provides the greatest impact in the lives of many, many individuals and families.
