Julie Sawchuk from Canada, lived a very active life - for two and a half years she trained as a triathlete - swim-bike-run.  She worked as a high school biology teacher and enjoyed the outdoor life with her husband and two young children. In July 2015 her life changed forever - she was out training on her bike when she was hit by a car. She suffered severe injuries and damage to multiple systems - fractured skull, shattered T4 and burst L1 vertebrae, broken ribs, nose - to name a few.

Julie's determination and athletic drive is what keeps her going.

Julie also has a blog that starts at the beginning of her journey and she continues to write on her blog about living life with paralysis.
