Congratulations, Kerri Morgan!
Morgan brings home two bronze medals from the paralympics
Congratulations to Paraquad Board member Kerri Morgan, as she brings home two bronze medals from the London Paralympics! Morgan competed in the 100- and 200-meter T52 races in the track and field competition.
"Two races, two medals; I couldn't be happier!" Morgan said when discussing her placing. We could not agree more!
Morgan placed third in the 100-meter race, with Marieke Vervoort of Belguim taking the gold, and Canada's Michele Stilwell winning the silver.
In the 200-meter race, Morgan also placed third, with Stilwell grabbing the gold and Vervoort the silver.

Paraquad's Passport to the paralympics
Select friends and family were able to support Kerri while she was in London, and on August 5, 2012, Paraquad hosted the Passport to the Paralympics at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. The event sent Kerri off with much support. Click on the photo below to see photographs from the event.
