Anjali Forber-Pratt, elite wheelchair track athlete and Paralympian medalist, whose reaction to dying is to live anyway and punch someone in the eye, needs your help.

It's true.

Even the most amazing people need some support.

Race winnings awards all go straight back into equipment costs and healthcare costs, and don't even cover them.

Retaining her relationship with the University of Illinois, where Anjali continues her academic success working on a PhD in Human Resource Education, helps tremendously defray some U.S. competition costs.

Yet to pay for training and competing at the level of the best in the world, Anjali holds down anywhere from one to three jobs at a given time– on top of her academic work, volunteering, and full-time training.

This makes the challenge of international competition much greater, because Paralympic athletes from other countries typically receive a higher level of financial support and are able to spend more dedicated time training.

A little support goes a long way in helping Anjali reach ever-greater success as an athlete and an inspiration.

Anjali is passionate about all she engages in. If you are fortunate, perhaps she can be an ambassador in some capacity for your organization.
