Amaya is registered for her first triathlon! PossAbilities is holding their 11th Annual triathlon on April 28, 2013. Amaya will be participant in the children's triathlon. She will be running/walking for a quarter mile, biking for a quarter mile then swimming 50 yards. Wow!
We first hear about the triathlon last year. It seemed so far away and it was a good goal for Amaya to work toward as she did her physical therapy during and after her lengthening. She decided way back then that she wanted to be a part of it and is very happy that we registered her.
Today is the eve of our one year anniversary since Amaya had her fixator put on. And now we're looking toward her first triathlon. What a difference a year can make!
Amaya decided to use the triathlon as an opportunity to fundraise for PossAbilities. The money raised goes toward PossAbilities to help with their programs. In the short months that Amaya has been a member of PossAbilities she has been able to be a part of their swim party, swimming lessons, art workshop, the PossAbilities dinner, and attended the Christmas Party. All services are free to members. PossAbilities has helped us connect with other families and given us all a place to go and be a part of something special. Fundraising is one small way we can thank them for all they've done for us and for other families. To learn more about PossAbilities you can click on the link on the right hand side of the page.
