want to be inspired look no further than 25 year-old Katie free she's getting on water skis for the first time since becoming paralyzed I was completely paralyzed from my collar bones down Katie was just 17 when she contracted a spinal virus while on a high-school mission to Guatemala leaving her in a wheelchair it just took a lot of determination to be able to become even like slightly independent again growing up Katie was an avid water skier and she never thought she would be back on the water again I loved waterskiing before I loved to run I played volleyball year-round so I was incredibly active and I never was really one to ever sit still that's where Alex Moran comes in she started an organization that helps people overcome obstacles a special basket was used along with an oversized ski it allows Katie to sit and stay secure so she doesn't lose her balance now for the big moment the boat takes off and katie is up it was just over I was overcome with emotion it was just trying to like soak in the moment I was just like oh man I can't wait to do this again you
