Yesterday, Iditarod musher Cindy Abbott visited our class. She spent 2 hours talking with students, sharing her story and answering questions. She is a truly a remarkable person and we are grateful she was able to spend time with us. Cindy has climbed Mt. Everest, traveled to 6 out of 7 continents and has run the Iditarod. But most notably, she has done all of this while fighting a very rare disease. To help highten awareness, Cindy has become a spokes person for National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD): Read more about her story at http://reachingbeyondtheclouds.com.
