Todds Ultra Run in Support of Kylie Helsley

On Sunday October 20th, 2019 Kylie Helsley was in a serious motorcycle accident that would leave her fighting for her life. The twenty-four year old lab technician is an animal-lover from Germantown, New York with a kind heart. The initial prognosis was grim, Kylie had sustained a significant traumatic brain injury, alongside other severe injuries that took a back burner to controlling neurological damage. Kylie was in a coma for over a month, and fought every day to open her eyes. Once her body had recovered enough, she was transferred on November 4th to Sunnyview, to begin the next part of her journey: rehabilitation. Here she worked diligently to build back her strength both physically and cognitively. Every single day entailed multiple rehabilitative sessions: physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Kylie has returned home, but her journey continues as she strives every day to achieve her goals. This requires Kylie and her family to make the 1 hour each way drive to Sunnyview multiple times a week to attend her therapy sessions that have pushed her progress forward.

This Sunday 04/19/20 starting at 7:00am I will be attempting to run 114 miles in 24hours. I am doing this run to show my support for my brothers wife’s niece Kylie Helsley. The 114 miles will represent 1 kilometer for every day since her accident which on April 20th will have been 183 days ago. Feel free to join the FaceBook page set up to show her progress at Kylies Journey. The progress she has made and continues to make is nothing short of amazing— and inspiring!! If you can make a small donation to help Kylie and her family use the Go Fund Me link set up for her on this page. This run is also part of a Virtual Ultra Race I am doing called Hubert’s 2020 Run for Sanity: Quarantine edition. I thank you in advance for you support .❤️
