About Candace Cable

Candace Cable believes that there were 4 elements that came together in 1975 that gave her, community, purpose, wellness and joy after her spinal cord injury at the age of 21 when she was ready to go of life. They were family, counseling, disabled students service’s office at Long Beach State University and adaptive sports. Candace pioneered the sport and equipment of wheelchair racing in the 70's and 80's. She went on to compete in 9 Paralympic Games in 3 sports winning 12 medals as well as compete in the Summer Olympic Games wheelchair racing exhibition on the track in 1984, 1988 and 1992 winning 2 medals.
