Storytime with Para Athlete, Cougar Clifford
Come meet 18-year-old para athlete, Cougar Clifford. On February 7, 2014, while playing in the snow in his hometown of Louisiana, Missouri, Cougar jumped headfirst into a snowbank, breaking the C5 vertebrae in his neck. After the accident he was told he would never be able to move anything from his shoulders down, and he would be on a ventilator the rest of his life. Four years later, determination and hard work have helped Cougar gain back much more movement than doctors thought possible. Cougar is now a seasoned athlete who competes in Paralympic swimming meets, triathlons, 10ks, and half marathons using a hand pedal running bike as well as a recumbent bike. Join us Tuesday, July 17 at 3:30 to hear Cougar tell his story. You can ask him a question or two, and take a look at some of his cool athletic gear. Afterward there will be a craft.
