Counselor Dawn said: ‘Edie was asking me ‘do I have to do the race?’ and I told her no, but as soon as they announced it, she was there.

“After she crossed the finish line, she looked back and saw that she was in the lead, so she kept going, she was so determined.”

“Everyone was cheering and clapping for her, I think she loved being the center of attention and seeing people smile. When she finished, she said, “She’s never had such loud applause.”

Dawn continued, “She loved everyone’s reaction to the video, it’s been amazing to see how people took to it too.” It was nice for people to see her determination and spirit.

I am so proud of her, she has given her so much confidence. Everyone calls her Speedy Edie now.
