Born with Spina Bifida, I spent most of my childhood in hospitals – dozens of surgeries promising to “fix” me. Although doctors predicted I’d never walk or graduate college, the prognosis motivated me to change my fate. Becoming independent felt good, but it came at the price of neglecting my health. A chance encounter with a handcycle changed my life. AND then there came a boy… About 12 years ago, during a motorcycle ride, a car ran a red light hitting a young 21-year-old Peter head on flipping him over his handlebars. He woke up to the reality that he broke his back and would never walk again. An avid hockey player before his accident, Peter got right into adaptive sports. After meeting at a 10K, we started building our dreams. I want to handcycle 58 marathons – 58 being the birthday my mom never made it to. Pete wants to get to 100 – cycling the length of NY to CA as a paraplegic. Together, we’ve completed 38 marathons and we want to add the Silo District Marathon to our goal!
