Convention Keynote Speaker, Candace

National Wheelchair Race Champion.
Paralympian, was the
Keynote Speaker for the
We were honored and privileged to welcome our Keynote Speaker, Candace Cable, a
9-time Paralympian, to our Convention.
A spinal cord injury at the age of 21 in
1975, brought about a need for Candace to
create social relationships with other wheelchair users, to feel connection and inclusion
in society. She believes that "adaptive sports
saved my life and defined my purpose."
Her achievements are noteworthy and
quite incredible. Candace participated in four
Summer Paralympics and five Winter Paralympics from 1980 to 2006, winning 12 Paralympic Medals (8 Gold Medals). A member
of the U.S. Wheelchair Sports Team (19801996), she was a U.S. National Track Champion 55 times. Also a member of the U.S.
Disabled Ski Team (1989-2006) she was a U.S.
National Cross Country Ski Champion 32
times. Candace has been the winner of 84
marathons, including six Boston Marathons.
A pioneer in the sport of wheelchair racing, she was a member of a small group that
evolved equipment, rules, race director guidelines, endorsements and media presence to
where it is today. She is currently a Skiing
Athlete Representative to the U.S.O.C. Athlete
Advisory Board, and a Presenter and Co-Creator of the Disability to Possibility Kit.
For all those who were in attendance to
hear her story, and especially those who had
the opportunity to personally meet and speak
with this warm and generous person, you
couldn't help but know that "limitation" is just
a state of mind, to feel inspired and motivated
to make your own contributions in life. L
