Sponsor a Captain
How Captain Sponsorship works
Sponsoring a Captain is a personal way to provide inclusion for athletes with disabilities.
For $25 per month, you’ll help a Captain build lasting friendships and self confidence through inclusive community athletics.
You can learn about each of our Captains below and choose to sponsor each of them individually! If you’d like us to choose a Captain for you that is need of a sponsor, click the button below to get started.

I was born 10 weeks prematurely, with a grade 4 brain bleed, collapsed lungs, and pneumonia, spending 88 days in the NICU. Parents were told I’d never sit or walk…I’m doing both! I’m a published author and motivational speaker, speaking to schools about anti bullying and how to include, not exclude, differently abled individuals.
I’ve been with mTT for going on about 6 years now. I do local races like the Cellcom, Packer 5k, and my favorite, the Bellin Run. I wasn’t sure on whether to join mTT at first, but tried a training run through the support of a friend, and the rest is history. I’ve become a Captain Ambassador, doing speeches with and for mTT all over the state. I like to call mTT my “second family” because of the relationship building we preach and I’ve gained with fellow Angels and Captains, both on and off the track.
I was born with with Cerebral Palsy but not correctly diagnosed until I was 11.
I joined mTT in 2015 when my school counselor asked if I would like to do the Nicolet Bay 5k. After doing that race, I was hooked. Not only do I do this race every year but I do races all over the state. In 2017, I became a Captain Ambassador of this wonderful organization because I wanted to give back!
That same year I had the privilege of being a Captain for IRONMAN Wisconsin!!
One of my favorite memories I running through Central Park in New York with 4 of my Angels who I call “Angel Dads”
mTT is my second family. I value the friendships that I would otherwise have!
I was born with Spina Bifida and Cerebral Palsy, although this was not diagnosed until I was 16 years old. I love to be very active. If I am not doing races I going downhill skiing in the winter and participating in martial arts. I am currently a first-degree black belt in taekwondo.
I got involved with MTT in 2015 when I participated in the Triumph Mile. I walked a mile for the first time in my life and completed it in 4 hours and 33 minutes with the help of my Angels cheering me on. Since then I have done everything from the Bellin Run, Cellcom Green Bay Marathon, Door County Half Marathon and so many, many more with the most recent and amazing event, IRONMAN Wisconsin.

Does my $25 per month go directly to the Captain?
As a Captain Sponsor, you will be connected with one specific Captain. But Captains do not receive direct cash benefits. Your monthly donation is pooled for maximum effectiveness. You join forces with other sponsors to fund long-term inclusion efforts for your Captain and others in their community.
How long is my sponsorship commitment?
Your sponsorship is an ongoing commitment that helps sponsor your Captain and their community to become more inclusive.
How long will I be able to sponsor the same Captain?
Your sponsorship is a long-term commitment. Most of our Captains participate with mTT for multiple years as it is a great way for them to build life-long relationships.
Sponsorship may end for a variety of reasons such as a Captain not being able to continue to participate for health reasons
If your Captain is no longer able to be sponsored, we will notify you of a new Captain that your sponsorship will support
