“I’ve seen and met angels wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives.”
~ Tracy Chapman

Thanks to the countless volunteers who help Train to Inspire carry out our mission of making the seamlessly impossible a reality for people with disabilities. Your time and talents make a difference!  Thank you for raising  your hand in support of all of our friends who are accomplishing the things they never thought they could do.  

Volunteers, in the blue t-shirts, are shown below assisting participants as they conquered our NO LIMITS obstacle course last September.
In fact, not too long ago, Laura Gibson learned about Train to Inspire.  She jumped by volunteering and by bringing along her husband and friends to help with TTI events.  Laura and her crew volunteered for the obstacle course, our Pizza Ranch fundraising dinners, arranged for the TTI party buses to park at her organization, helped at our Go Cart event, and more!  Obviously, her support has been tremendous.  A HUGE thank you to Laura!
