When Kelly Brush began downhill ski racing at age 7, her aggressive style earned her the nickname Tiger. Years later, she hit the slopes for Middlebury College as an athlete of great promise. Everything changed in February 2006, when a fall during a collegiate race left her paralyzed from the waist down. In the face of tragedy, the Charlotte native created the Kelly Brush Foundation, which improves the safety of ski racing and provides adaptive equipment to paralyzed athletes. Featuring 25-, 50- and 100-mile routes for cyclists and handcyclists, the Kelly Brush Century Ride raises funds for the organization and hope for those afflicted with spinal cord injuries.
