THE DISNEY CHAMPION

I smashed my personal best from training and I was crowned the female wheelchair champion

Hi, I am Bethany. I started experiencing difficulty with walking at the age of 16. I spent about 2-3 years going too and from different hospitals before being diagnosed with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia. I struggled with the fact that my fast paced life seemed to come to a sudden halt, and that's why about 2 years ago I started looking in to wheelchair racing. I thought the cost of the sport would hold me back, but then I found the motivation wheelchair. I started signing myself up for races and I noticed what a difference the sport was having on me both mentally and physically; I was starting to get out of the house and seeing the world. I have so far completed 3 10Ks and a half marathon with 2 more half's lined up in the next 6 months. I also do a timed 5K every Saturday morning at my local Parkrun. My greatest achievement so far was the half marathon at Disney World because not only did I finish it, I smashed my personal best from training and I was crowned the female wheelchair champion! I'm heading back next year to defend my title!
