EVENT DATE: Sep 11, 2014

THE STORY:

Halfway up a scary climb is not the right time to consider backing out.  When a climb gets challenging, the smartest and safest approach is to keep going, fully committed to your choices.  My life got unexpectedly challenging on January 12th, 2010 when I lost my right leg in the Haiti earthquake.  The only logical choice, though, was to keep going. 

I’ve kept on climbing and on July 21st, I won first place in my division of the first ever USA Paraclimbing National Championships in Atlanta, Georgia. Next month, on September 11th, I’ll represent the United States at the Paraclimbing World Championships in Gijon, Spain. 

For me, the competing in the Paraclimbing World Championships is a celebration of what I am still capable of. I also know that this opportunity to excel comes from a place of great privilege, one not afforded to most of the people most directly affected by the earthquake in Haiti.  Their world changed on January 12th, 2010, and unlike me, many of their dreams are constrained by lack of access to the education and resources necessary to accomplish them.  

I hope to raise $5,000 to support the dreams of a new generation of young people in Haiti through education and community development at the Haiti Partners Children’s Academy and their partner schools. Please join me in helping provide the resources my friends in Haiti need to continue rebuilding their communities and achieving their highest aspirations.
