Kacey McCallisterKacey McCallister lost both his legs in an accident when he was five, but he has never stopped figuring out how to rise up. He says, "From a very early life I learned that life is to be lived, not just survived.... I mean, who could imagine that a guy without legs could complete a 50 mile hike, make it to State Championship Wrestling, or become an Eagle Scout?"

Kacey is a family man, competes in marathons, and tours as a motivational speaker. You will be inspired and amazed when you meet Oregon's own wheelchair athlete at the Downtown Bend Library on Tuesday, June 21 at 2:30 p.m. For more information on Kacey go to
