Misty had so many questions with no real answers and no one to talk to who shared her condition. Now is her chance to be there to help others the way she wished someone would have been there to help her growing up.
Running has allowed Misty to raise awareness that even if you do things differently, you can still accomplish your goals. The biggest reward has been meeting so many kids and adults with Spina Bifida and having them tell her how much she inspires them. The greatest feeling is when she arrives in the airport and sees a little girl holding a sign saying "Welcome Misty”. These are the real rewards!
