I was born 10 weeks prematurely, with a grade 4 brain bleed, collapsed lungs, and pneumonia, spending 88 days in the NICU. Parents were told I’d never sit or walk…I’m doing both! I’m a published author and motivational speaker, speaking to schools about anti bullying and how to include, not exclude, differently abled individuals.
I’ve been with mTT for going on about 6 years now. I do local races like the Cellcom, Packer 5k, and my favorite, the Bellin Run. I wasn’t sure on whether to join mTT at first, but tried a training run through the support of a friend, and the rest is history. I’ve become a Captain Ambassador, doing speeches with and for mTT all over the state. I like to call mTT my “second family” because of the relationship building we preach and I’ve gained with fellow Angels and Captains, both on and off the track.
