Relay for Rachael 2016

It's relay time again! This year is the 6th annual relay for Rachael and I have four teams and two full marathon runners who are hitting Highway 1 on Sunday, April 24th at the Big Sur International Marathon. This is my annual fundraiser to help with my ongoing physical therapy costs after a car accident that left me a quadriplegic in 2010.

Every year I am blown away by the amount of support that continues to flow in. My exercise/rehab program is the most important thing to me and I am able to continue this because of the support from my community and the relay for Rachael. Without it my quality of life would dramatically deteriorate. Every day I am so thankful that I am given the opportunity to heal, that I can put all of my energy into gaining as much strength back as possible. I believe if I continue to work hard the possibilities are endless. I know that there are many people in my situation that don't have the support that I do and do not have the opportunity that I have and for this I am forever grateful. I am inspired and left in awe by the amazing runners who year after year train hard and raise money so one day I can too.

Thank you for being my light!
