Paralympian, silver medalist in wheelchair racing and recent contender for Ms. Wheelchair America, WACAP adoptee Maggie Redden inspires active, healthy living while advocating on behalf of the 54 million Americans living with disabilities. Born in India, Maggie contracted polio as an infant, a disease that paralyzed her from the waist down. At age 2, Maggie was adopted by a single mom who encouraged her to follow her dreams. Currently, Maggie is working at a nonprofit organization helping individuals with disabilities gain self-sufficiency while pursuing her Masters of Public Administration.
If you’re in the Seattle area, Save the date of Thursday, April 30, and join us for lunch at WACAP Children’s Hope Luncheon to hear Maggie’s remarkable story and learn how WACAP continues to help children with disabilities find adoptive families today.
