Hi! My name is Abby Bennett, and when I was 14 I broke my back in a skiing accident and sustained a spinal cord injury. One of the biggest factors that helped me heal both physically and mentally was becoming active again and learning adaptive sports. Swim With Mike is an organization that supports disabled athletes such as myself with scholarships! I am now a sophomore at Brigham Young University and I am continuing to participate in activities like handbiking, monoskiing, and swimming. The Swim With Mike foundation has been one of the most incredible and important things that I have ever been a part of and I am honored to be one of its scholarship recipients. This year I am holding my second annual bike-a-thon on August 5, 2017 to raise money to give back to the foundation! By pledging money or simply donating, you are making a difference in the lives of disabled collegiate athletes across America.
