It’s a great honor for Official World Record to collaborate with Elizabeth Sanden, and to register her amazing and new Official World Record. Beth Sanden was never
supposed to walk again after becoming a paraplegic following a 2002 cycling accident. But that hasn’t stopped the athlete from completing lots of marathons and
triathlons via handcycle.

“The reason why I’m doing this is to hopefully inspire other guys and gals like myself,” Sanden said. “There are things out there you can do even if you’re disabled.”
In fact, Sanden’s visits abroad have involved transporting donated equipment for local disabled athletes. This mission began at the Kilimanjaro Marathon, where she
noticed disabled Tanzanians and Kenyans sitting on the sidelines, watching from chairs as the marathoners raced by.

When she returned home, she — along with fellow athletes and longtime friends Paul and Denise Fejtek — developed a plan. They enlisted the help of Challenged Athletes
Foundation in San Diego, which Sanden has worked with closely since her accident, in finding potential donors of good used equipment for disabled athletes, including
pieces like handcycles and race chairs.

“I’ve done more since I’ve been injured than I had prior,” said Sanden, of San Clemente (California, USA).
