It is this same community of supporters that keeps it burning today." is a community where athletes at all levels, even those who were not involved in an activity prior to experiencing an accident, illness or injury, can share their experiences, publicly set new goals and eventually motivate others with their shared triumph.

"A little more than a year and a half ago I didn't know if I would be able to run again," said Mark Hager. "However, since I was motivated by a friend and inspired by another athlete's amazing story of recovery, I returned to running and was able to achieve my goal of completing a marathon. I hope that will become a source of encouragement, assistance and inspiration that will help other athletes achieve their current and future goals."
