Over 1,000 people ran, walked, biked and even pushed their wheelchairs across the James Island Connector Run this past Saturday. The Charleston community came out to support the Gavalas-Kolanko Foundation and set a new attendance record.
I drove my wheelchair in the race along with some others in the race. It was my first time on the race course and I completed the 10K trek in 1:14:44. What was even more remarkable was that two of the wheelchair basketball players pushed their manual chairs up and down the hills of the bridge in a little over an hour.
