In the Words of a TTI Participant...
Train To Inspire has CHANGED my life.

I didn't think I would ever have a person that would go above and beyond to support me.  I want to be able to show more of my abilities than my disabilities.  Train to Inspire gets me out into the community and helps work on my goals of getting out of my comfort zone.  TTI helps me to accomplish beating my fears. FEAR actually means Face Everything And Rise.   I've learned that life's a mountain not a beach: life's tough, it's going to throw you avalanches-road blocks or anything trying to stop you.  But I'm willing to take chances and risks to succeed to the top of the mountain. #DefiningAllOdds

Train To Inspire has done so much for me, and I couldn't have done it without you.  Thanks for being in my life and helping me make it to year 25 of fighting my autism.

Several drivers are lined up, ready to race!

These people were racing so fast we didn't even see their faces!  Or was it the safety precautions/helmets?  Either way, we can see the joy in their eyes - even if their smiles are hidden.  What a great day for racing it was!  

Please share your pictures of our events on our Facebook page! You might even find some pictures of yourself there.
