CHEERS - To a young woman's perseverance. Former Johnstown High School student Kelsey Insogna lost partial use of her legs in a 2011 town of Johnstown car accident, which also claimed the life of her brother. She has not allowed the tragedy to stop her from enjoying life and taking on new challenges. Kelsey, who uses a wheelchair most of the time, has taken up handcycling. In April, she completed her first Cycle to the Sea event, a three-day bicycle and handcycling ride from Charlotte, N.C., to North Myrtle Beach, S.C. The annual 18-mile journey is a fundraising event for the Adaptive Sports & Adventures Program in North Carolina. "I love challenges," Kelsey says. We love her strength and positive approach. She's an inspiration to all of us.
