FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Kelly Dowless was struck with Transverse Myelitis, a debilitating condition which has left her paralyzed. Some proceeds from the race will assist with providing Kelly a handicap accessible bathroom so that she can gain some independence that she does not currently have. A portion of proceeds will go to help fund research and initiatives of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.
