A Message to the Boston Marathon Amputees: It Gets Better
NEW SWAG!!!! See the great new Zagg Swag (right) I have to offer for the last two weeks of my Rally. Thanks to a great partnership with Zagg and iFrogz. This company is amazing and is helping athletes like me be the best.
Hi I'm Anna Beninati and I'm a seated ski racer.
Two years ago I was in a train accident and lost both of my legs. I fought back and found new life in Alpine ski racing.
The first season is always the hardest for a new athlete, because you have to buy eqiupment before you can compete! For a disabled ski racer, that means a competition-model ski rig, a quivver of skis you can race and train on, a set of racing outriggers, a speed suit, helmet, goggles, slalom armor, gloves, ski boots (KIDDING), the list goes on and on!
My Nissin monoski is $6,600 alone, which I financed on a loan. Help me pay that loan back, so I can finally own my very own ski rig!
On top of that, a set of outriggers from Enabling Technologies is, on average, $400. Each set of skis I break is a set I need to replace, which can be up to $600 a pair.
I understand that this is a lot, so I'm asking that you, my friends and family, help me raise $7,000 to finance my equipment costs. I need good, solid, quality gear that will last me years to come. And even if we don't make our goal (for it is a lofty one, I know) anything you can contribute will help!
My goal is to make the Paralympic Team for 2018 and I'm on my way to making that happen thanks to my family, friends, coaches and countless others who have supported me.
Help me reach that Paralympic Gold!!
Love and gratitude,
