THE STORY:

Welcome to the official fundraising page for #TEAMRACHEL! Rachel is the essence of the team. She suffered an inutero stroke when her identical twin unexpectedly passed away. The frontal lobes of her brain underwent the most damage and as a result the wiring that controls motor movement is severely impaired. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 10 months, Rachel has never allowed her disability to shape who she is or what she can accomplish. She has had to learn to work through emotional turbulence, physical pain and physically exhausting therapies to get to where she is today. If you take a look at the obstacles Rachel overcomes on a daily basis, you will begin to realize how inspirational she truly is. In April 2016, many of you may have seen Rachel walk across the finish line for the first time ever. Amongst all the cheers and tears, this moment is forever cemented in the minds of those who were witness to her unlimited courage and determination. This moment would not have been possible without support of family, friends, and community. Just like so many other families of individuals with special needs, monetary funds for such experiences are few and far between. Medical appointments, treatments, adaptive equipment, and transportation to and from the multiple therapies are just a few of the expenses that often go unnoticed by those who do not combat the similar struggles. Please consider donating any amount to #TEAMRACHEL. All funds raised will go towards race registrations and travel expenses so that Rachel can continue to inspire people by racing and walking across the finish line with a smile.
