April Holmes


April Holmes is a great example of what happens when you are forced to modify or even dramatically change your dreams and goals. 

She was one of top collegiate track stars in the country, the winner of multiple NCAA All-American honors and a sprinter with a glorious future. 

Then, in an instant, she lost her leg in a fluke accident at a Philadelphia train station. 

She describes how she ended up under a train and what it felt like to wake up with her leg missing. The lifelong athlete feared she’d never run or play basketball again. 

April explains how she learned about the Paralympics while she was still in her hospital bed and the three goals she set for herself that day. 

Find out about her incredible journey since losing her leg and why she thinks her life was saved for a reason.
