Kianie King wrote -Most of you know my story by now, but here's the scoop for anyone new. My name is Kianie, and I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at about a year old. I was fortunate enough that the cerebral palsy only affects my ability to walk, and even then I am a very functioning handiCAPABLE individual. This will be the 4th year I will be participating in Pat's Run. The first year I did Pat's Run, I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I just wanted to complete a walk and raise some money for deserving men and women to further their education. Through my journey I was asked to speak in front of 300+ women about my experiences and I've been interviewed twice on Channel 12 news. It's been an overwhelming and humbling experience, and it still fascinates me that folks are so inspired by my efforts. Each year I have completed Pat's Run I have faced different challenges and this year is no exception. On January 23rd, my husband and I were blessed with a beautiful baby girl named Zoey. I was concerned that I wouldn't be ready for Pat's Run because I couldn't start training until after she was born. But I've realized that my fears are miniscule to the fears that others might face when being deployed or having their loved ones deployed. So here I am, signed up to complete another run with Zoey by my side. I look forward to another year of blisters, sore muscles and meeting some of the most amazing, inspiring Tillman Scholars. Please take a minute to show your appreciation and donate to help these scholars pursue their dreams!
