Relay for Rachael 2015

The fifth annual Relay for Rachael, it is hard to believe... since I woke up in the hospital paralyzed from the neck down in 2010, I have been working everyday to gain my movement back. This is only possible because I have an amazing community of friends and family who are willing to go out, run hard and raise money for me. It is uncomfortable for me to ask for help, but I am learning that people want to help. I see the happiness on people's faces when they see my strength coming back, and this makes me happy, I am excited for the changes ahead. It is a tough world and I feel so grateful that everyday I am getting stronger. Everyday I am one step closer to stepping again...

This year I have 20 runners, 5 relay teams running in the Big Sur Marathon, along with a good friend who is running the full marathon! This is the 5th annual Relay for Rachael and we are stronger than ever with the most runners yet. The goal is to be the fastest team and raise the most money to help with my physical therapy costs. 6 days a week, 4 hours a day I work out with my trainer and this is possible because of people like you who donate to my recovery. Over the past year I feel the strength all over my body returning, my arms and hands are becoming more useful, my rehab is working! The runners are training hard and hit highway 1 on Sunday, April 26th to run their hardest for my recovery and I am forever grateful for their amazing support and yours!
