Hello my name is Starla Hilliard-Barnes a twice paralyzed paraplegic that is ready to climb Kilimanjaro. It has been my dream since a young child. I thought it was impossible after being paralyzed until recently. I will be joining the February trip. I am a wife, mother and founder of Moving Forward Adaptive Sports and Gifts of Love. Bringing free Adaptive sports to our veterans and differently able in the Flathead!. My team mate is my husband Shannon Barnes he survived a traumatic Brain Injury the same day I was paralyzed the second time. Together we have overcome every odd faced with and we will conquer Kilimanjaro together just like our daily life! I couldnt ask for a better partner through the accident, surgeries, birth, to philanthropy, ourchildren,and standing on stage with me speaking about our journey and how we can overcome any obstacle, to being the first women in 2016 to enter into Montanas Mrs. America in a wheelchair, to winning Ms Wheelchair Montana and so much more! He is the reason I have every award I have. I couldnt do it without my teammate! Please join me in supporting my trek up the 19341 foot Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania on behalf of Friends of Access Israel (‘FAISR’)
