THE STORY:

I contracted polio at a young age in Ghana which led to my physical disability but I have always been determined not to let this hold me back. In 2011, I completed my first New York marathon in the Wheelchair Division and this year, I will be participating once again on Sunday November 1, 2015 to raise funds for St. George’s Society of New York. In 2013, St. George’s awarded me with a scholarship that enabled me to complete my degree in Social Work at Lehman College (part of The City University of New York). I am so grateful for the support that I received in my time of need helping me to pay for my tuition and other expenses. Without the assistance of St. George’s Society, it would have been difficult for me to survive. I want to use this opportunity to raise funds for more scholars like myself who have the determination to succeed but lack the funds to complete their studies and launch their careers.
