THE STORY:

As you all know, I have been a life-long competitive athlete and avid runner.  My life changed three years ago when I underwent repeat spinal surgery in order to prevent paralysis in both my legs.  Every day I can walk, run or dance is a reminder that I must never take the use of my body for granted, and I must treat it with the utmost care it deserves.  My injury made me sensitive to the challenges people living with physical disabilities face, and often I can't help but feel that I am just very lucky.  

Every year since I had my surgery, I have a selected a charity race to run in to celebrate another year with the use of my legs and raise money for a cause that is important to me.  In the past years the races have been two very important causes close to my heart: HIV/AIDS and breast cancer.  But this year I am excited to have entered the Achilles Hope and Possibility 5 mile race in Central Park, NYC on June 30.  This event brings together able-bodied athletes and athletes with disabilities to complete the 5 mile course side by side.

I support the mission of Achilles International which is to empower people living with physical disabilities to participate in mainstream competitive sports in order to promote achievement and self-esteem and reduce barriers to living a enriching and fulfilling life. Join me in this year's special celebration of health with a small donation. Even $5 will go a long way.
