CODY UNSER FIRST STEP FOUNDATION
June 9, 2010
I first met Cody at the University of Redlands where she was a student of mine. When she was hit with TM at the age of 13, many would have given up. Her determination to make a difference in the lives of other disabled individuals is what most stands out in my mind. Through the dedication of many individuals, the foundation has touched the lives of numerous disabled persons through research, increased awareness, and the scuba program which allows participants to experience the freedom of movement often lacking in their everyday lives. This pushes participants to reach beyond their disabilities and to consider what is possible. To witness this transformation is something everyone should see. This non-profit is destined to have an even more tremendous impact in the future and I am thrilled to be part of it.

I have witnessed the joy on the faces of those participants in the scuba events as they move from the restriction of wheelchairs to the freedom in the water. This confidence in their own abilities may translate to many other areas of their lives.
