THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

For those of you who do not know my story, in October 2003 I sustained a spinal cord injury due to a car accident. Since that time I have been paralyzed from the waist down, but have not let that stop me from living an active and fulfilling life. I have continued to pursue my passion for wine and am currently working as a Sommelier!

In 2011, myself along with a few others who are committed and passionate about helping disabled individuals founded Wheeling Forward, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Wheeling Forward's mission is to provide guidance and resources to individuals with disabilities for the purpose of achieving goals today rather than tomorrow. To learn more about Wheeling Forward and the work we do please visit www.wheelingforward.org or www.facebook.com/WheelingForward

Throughout the years being involved in adaptive sports and staying fit has helped me tremendously to keep my body in shape and to gain confidence for tackling the challenges of living with a disability. This year I will be competing in the NYC Marathon to raise money to support the Axis Project, operated by Wheeling Forward. The Axis Project is a first-of-its-kind health and wellness center in Manhattan that motivates people with physical disabilities to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle. The center is open 6 days a week and is designed specifically for people with physical disabilities with adaptive programming and all accessible equipment.

Thank you for all of your support, and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! All donations are tax-deductible and your donation will go directly to supporting those living with disabilities.

SEE YOU AT THE FINISH LINE!!
