Twin City Track Club is delighted to announce the selection of Beat the Heat Charity Partners for 2023.
- Ainsley’s Angels in the Triad
- Community Care Center for Forsyth County, Inc.
The Charity Partner program is a way to further support our mission to promote fitness and health, and to improve the quality of life for individuals and families. A portion of the event proceeds goes towards each of these non-profit charities.
Race participants are given the opportunity to contribute to the Charity Partners at the time of event registration, further increasing the charitable contributions.
Anyone can make a donation to the charity partners at any time. You do not need to register to make a donation.
Ainsley’s Angels in the Triad takes people off the sidelines to over the finish line. Through endurance events and road races just like Beat the Heat, the organization promotes teamwork, fitness, and inclusion by pairing an able-bodied runner with a special needs athlete rider. When an angel runner lends their legs and is pulled by one of our angel riders in a race, they give the rider the ability to participate in something previously thought impossible. Funds awarded will be used towards the purchase of specialized racing chairs to service our rapidly expanding athlete rider base. More racing chairs gives us the ability to reach and serve more families, and 100% of money awarded through this partnership will stay local to impact our Triad riders.
Community Care Center for Forsyth County, Inc. has a mission "to provide access to compassionate, high-quality healthcare services to the medically uninsured and underserved who reside in Forsyth, Stokes and Davie Counties and meet the financial eligibility guidelines of Community Care Center." Our guidelines allow us to serve those with household incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level and are not covered under Medicare, Medicaid, employer-based insurance, or private health insurance. In addition to primary health care, we provide behavioral health, dental health, medications, and selected specialty care on-site at our clinic. We have relationships which allow us to refer patients to other providers for care we do not provide. Most of our patients have one or more chronic diseases. Approximately 40 percent of our patients have diabetes and 40 percent have high blood pressure.
