myTEAM TRIUMPH Minnesota brings together the community, equipment, and resources to allow children, teens, adults, and veterans with disabilities to be able to lead a team and experience endurance events like road races or triathlons.
How It Works
With myTEAM TRIUMPH, disabled participants get to do it all! They will “Captain” a team of “Angels” through an entire race guaranteeing them their moment of glory as they cross that finish line that so many of us take for granted. myTEAM Triumph - Minnesota facilitates the entire experience by bringing together the community, equipment, and resources, from training runs and packet pick-up to the thrill of crossing the finish line!
Captains are children, teens, adults and veterans who are the inspiration of our team with their spirit of courage and joy and are affected by physical or mental limitations that normally preclude them from athletic events. Participation in a event as a Captain is an exciting experience that is free of cost.
Angels are athletes who have the honor of pushing and pulling a Captain utilizing specialized racing equipment throughout the course – they can be family, a caregiver, or most commonly, volunteers.
Crossing the finish line together, teams build deep bonds based on respect, and an experience they will never forget!
All Equipment needed for a captain to compete in a event will be provided by myTEAM Triumph and can be utilized for training and race preparation. This includes chairs, boats, harnesses and bike trailers. Prior to the event, captains are fitted to match the individual with a chair that will provide maximum comfort and safety. Chairs are customizable allowing use by most body types and offer many safety features for both Captains and Angles.
How It Started
myTeam Tiumph - Minnesota was founded in 2015 by a dedicated group of voulenters who shared a goal to provide the same opportunities that Dick Hoyt has provided for his son, Rick when the first chapter was formed in 2008.
