Christa wins the world paraclimbing championship!
September 15, 2014
Congratulations to friend and colleague, Christa Brelsford, on winning the women’s world paraclimbing championship this weekend! Christa – who lost her right leg below the knee in the 2010 Haiti earthquake – has been a real inspiration to all of us at Haiti Partners. Both through surviving the trauma of the earthquake itself, and then turning that terrible misfortune into an opportunity to raise awareness about Haiti, Christa has shown strength, courage, grace and humility. We are so honored to count her as a partner, friend and supporter.
To view Christa’s climb, begin viewing the above video at 3:34:00.
We are also grateful to Christa for using this competition as a fundraising opportunity to support education in Haiti through Haiti Partners. Click here to contribute to her Crowdrise campaign, or click here to give directly to HP in her honor.
Thank you, Christa, and congratulations on your big win!
