ORGANIZER: Wheeling Forward Inc
Hi, I'm Jessica and I am racing in the NYC marathon this year to raise money for the disabled community. As a young child, I developed weakness and imbalance in my legs, which robbed me of the ability to walk on my own, and I have been in a chair since I was 13 years old. Over the years, it has been a struggle to find my place (especially without ever been given a diagnosis) and getting into handcycling and other programs, such as Axis, has helped with just that. I have found much comfort connecting with individuals like myself and built my confidence through working out and opening my eyes to everything I can do despite my disability. I want all disabled people to discover what I have discovered, but sometimes a little help is needed and I want all of these programs to continue--and even multiply, which is why I am raising money for Wheeling forward. Any donation is appreciated! Thank you!!
