Claire Lomas, a British event rider who was paralyzed from the waist down in a cross-country accident five years ago, refuses to let anything slow her down. Samantha Clark thinks she deserves our vote in the upcoming Inspiration Awards for Women–and we agree!
From Get Back Ex Husband Samantha:
As you know, Eventing Nation is a an enormous fan of Claire Lomas, and we’d like to ask you all to show your solidarity and please vote for her in the upcoming Inspiration Awards for Women. Claire has been nominated in the Inspirational Fundraiser Category, and as her total raised from the Naked Riders Calendar, London Marathon and other efforts has already surpassed 200 thousand GB pounds and continues to rise, you could argue that she deserved your vote on mathematical merit alone. That would be to ignore her tremendous spirit, courage and what we’re voting for – inspiration. Barely a few days after becoming the first person to complete the London Marathon in a robotic suit, and being awarded the Virgin Trophy, Claire was already thinking of ways to try and keep the momentum going, and to raise more funds and awareness for Spinal Research, and to this end she’ll be attempting to bike from Paris to London next Spring. Please, Eventing Nation, let’s do this for Claire – you do need to vote in all the categories to make your vote count, and then you might want to do it again if you have another email account, and you’ll definitely want to pass it on to all your friends please – Let’s do this for Claire! Go Eventing Nation and Inspirational Women, especially Claire Lomas!
