EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2011
In March of 2011 my cousin Victoria Angelo, 20, of Brookfield CT, was in a car accident resulting in C3-5 Quadraplegia. In other words she has no functional use of her hands and is only able to move her elbows and shoulders. She is unable to walk or sit unsupported.
As I started training for my Triathlon I thought it would be a great way to raise money for Vicky. Her Medicaid was recently taken away and her family cares for her 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
On September 17, 2011 I will be participating in The Housatonic Valley Triathlon in Danbury, CT in honor of Vicky. Her motto is "Don't Stop Believing" because one day we believe she will walk. In the meantime, since I can, I will be swimming, biking and running for her.
