As the Paralympic ceremony brings the games to a close we can only be in awe of these amazing dedicated athletes.  Karen is one of them, having been paralysed from the chest down in a climbing accident she has gone on to do more than most of us would dream about like pushing herself along on skis with arms and hand-poles over Greenland, climbing El Capitan and more.  An extraordinary exemplar showing perseverance, resilience, determination, future focus strength of mind and body (and more).  Having met her when she launched her book "If you Fall...It's a New Beginning" I am delighted to see her further success.  She's someone to keep in mind the next time an unwanted change comes our way.
