Your Real Champion – “One of Ainsley’s Angels“
Amanda Piccirilli-Hall combines her love of sport with her love of people in a unique way. She has found her purpose in life working with Ainsley’s Angels – a non-profit that enables able-bodied runners to use their legs to push people with disabilities in endurance events. A former Division I college athlete, Amanda “walks the walk” as a runner and “talks the talk” as the national VP of marketing for this “AA-mazing” community.
Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
