Helen Serves Through Sports

Helen was born with a T5 spinal cord lesion, paralyzing her from mid-chest down. Throughout her life, adaptive sports served as an uplifting, life-changing, inclusive activity – a gift she now wishes to share with others. After years of participating in HFSC Adaptive Sports summer camp, Helen now serves as a volunteer and seeks to make sports more inclusive nationwide.
