Heaven Can't Wait!
We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a very special athlete at this year’s Spring Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon. We are inviting you to join Heaven Vallejos in a “celebration of abilities”. These are abilities of all sorts and sizes!!!
Heaven Vallejos and her twin brother, Allen, were born pre-mature. They spent their first 30 days of life in the intensive natal care unit before they were allowed to go home. Unfortunately, both babies were born with a retina deficiency which left Heaven blind.
Heaven’s passion for running began last year when she joined her school track team. She then progressed to do a “maraFUNrun” at the recent Sacramento Marathon. After completing the run, she expressed a desire to complete a triathlon.
Two men stepped up to the “starting line” and are sponsoring Heaven in the Spring Sprint Triathlon (Itsy-Bitsy event) on Sunday, May 4th. With the assistance of the Blind Stokers, the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and a special running guide, Heaven will be able to compete in her first triathlon.
We want YOU to join Heaven as she crosses the finish line.
