We are thrilled to announce that Georgia’s own, Aimee Copeland will be our keynote speaker for the 2014 Georgia Disability Sport Awards.
Aimee, a University of West Georgia graduate student, miraculously survived a near fatal case of necrotizing fasciitis after falling from a zip line in May 2012. Against all odds and medical knowledge, Aimee lived through the infection, but lost her entire left leg, right foot and both hands during the process.
Two years since her accident, Aimee is living more independently, staying active and working on her second master’s degree. She enjoys the outdoors and working with others. She continues to live life to the fullest and uses her story to inspire others who face similar struggles.
The Georgia Disability Sport Awards will be held on Sunday, November 9th from 2pm-5pm at the Atlanta History Center.
