Kids with special needs deserve to experience the same opportunities that other children experience. Matrix Mighty Milers is an inclusive 5K training team for children of all ages and all different abilities. Here is what this program has meant to one family:

“Mighty Milers has given Ella a place to push herself to new limits and at the same time feel good about where she is today. She can put in full effort and reach new goals, or she can have a hard day where it is all too much. Either way, she feels accepted and understood. High expectations for her extra challenges is what I hope for Ella. Mighty Milers offers both. It has given our family a place to feel community and experience being a part of a team. This program has moved Ella from sitting with a screen, to being out on trails. Today she told me she loves being active.”
Sarah Ponsford, Parent
