Team ARC is a fun & rewarding


2012 Team ARC made history when two of its athletes were the first women with Down Syndrome to finish a Marathon (Antoinette & Angela)

2013 7Athletes with special needs embarked on an adventure from Dodger Stadium to the Sea AKA the ASICS LA Marathon & finished!

An amazing team full of inspiring stories

 It is phenomenal how Team ARC Marathon was born out of a dream of Rafael Adame (50 of N. Hollywood) an athlete with special needs.  He convinced his staff Jennifer Davis a non-runner at the time to do the LA Marathon.  Before you know it Rafael, his best friend Tim Sathre (athletes with special needs), and Jennifer had run 5 marathons together. Then last year Antoinette Mendoza and Angela Armenta joined them along with Angela’s sister & brother and became the first women with Down syndrome to complete a marathon.   Team ARC runs to bring awareness and advocacy to the community of special needs individuals, and raise funds for the ARC program which daily serves individuals with special needs, and does outreach & gives

back with their English hand bell choir.
