A Truly Inspiring Morning - Gold medal standout! Sydney Running Festival

A blog written by our volunteer videographer, Michelle D'Souza of three60degreemedia

Angel, at just 20 years of age, is such an inspiration. In 2009, Angel suffered a Spinal Cord Stroke that made her an incomplete quadraplegic. She did not think she would walk or run again. She then came across Spinal Cord Injuries Australia's Walk On program and with a lot of hard work and dedication from the trainers and herself, today she celebrated her efforts by victoriously completing the 4km Fun Run.

What an inspiring way to start a Sunday morning! Three60 Degree Media volunteered to document this special young woman's journey today and we were so honoured to do this.The Sydney Running Festival celebrated 10 years today (19 Sept 2010) - what a glorious morning to walk on the Sydney Harbour Bridge with this amazing young woman, Angel.




A short clip of the film will be uploaded on this blog in a few weeks. Until then, here is Angel's Video-log (http://www.walkonfromspinalinjury.blogspot.com/) or watch her at www.gofundraise.com.au/angelwalkson
 
Thanks to Michelle for helping capture Angel's momentus day at the Sydney Running Festival.
