Karen PfeilI'm running for Team Reeve as this is the 10th anniversary of a life altering accident. This accident caused me to be a paraplegic due to a cauda equina injury. Due to the powerful work of the Reeve Foundation and the research they have funded, doctors were able to utilize techniques from new discoveries at the onset of my injuries.

I began to walk slowly after 6 months, returned to work 1 year later, and ran my first 5K at the 5th anniversary of my accident. Running for Team Reeve is an honor and a great way to return the gift that was given to me.
