Chris and Dana took a very tragic accident and made it into a crusade to help others. I respect that and am not sure if I would have had their strength to be so successful, productive and positive if I had to face the same obstacles. I draw inspiration from Chris and Dana and lace up my shoes and hit the road. DC is also my home town.

My father was killed in the Vietnam War when I was 8 years old. At the age of 21, I joined the US Army and successfully became FORSCOM Soldier of the Year. I suffer from Crohn's disease and I began running marathons last year. Although it's very hard on my body it allows me to escape my illness for a few hours and feel "normal". I am honored to continue the momentum the Reeves started in finding a cure for spinal cord injuries.
