An Inspiring Young Woman

I braved the cold and snow today to support Julie Macdonald run her leg of the Rick Hansen Relay.  Julie is a remarkable young woman who wanted to do something to raise awareness about spinal cord injuries after a close friend of hers was injured in a skiing accident a year ago.  Last June she organized an event, Wheel the Distance, and it was a resounding success.  In recognition of her hard work she was selected to run a leg of the relay.  Congratulations Julie, you have shown us all how one small act of kindness can make an powerful impact in the lives of many people.

Julie Macdonald and her supporters!
