It was inspiring to see the hard work of the Arc employees and volunteers coming together to present such a family-friendly, community-focused event.

MyTeam Triumph
MyTeam Triumph is an athletic ride along program created for children, teens, adults and veterans with disabilities who normally would be unable to experience endurance events such as triathlons or road races.

Mary Nogueras is a founding member of the Massachusetts chapter of MyTeam Triumph. She was a member of the Virginia Beach chapter with running team Rick and Dick Hoyt - the famous Boston Marathon team. Seventy-three-year-old Dick pushes his son, Rick, in a wheelchair during races. Together, they've run almost 1,200 races.

"Captains" are challenged athletes who are the inspiration of the team with their courage, spirit and joy.

They cross the finish line with their "Angel", a runner willing to push, pull, and cycle with their Captain to victory!
MyTeam Triumph participates in 5 and 10 k races, half marathons, marathons, triathlons and cycling events. They provide all of the equipment needed to allow the Captains to participate.

Several individuals at the Arc of Greater Plymouth regularly participate in MyTeam Triumph road races.
