Help Lindy Hopper Emily Stephenson Dance, Climb, and Bike Again

We were touched by this story about Emily Stephenson, a middle school teacher and lindy hopper who was hit by a speeding truck in early February. As a result of the accident, Emily lost her lower right leg, among many other serious injuries.

Prior to the accident, Emily was an incredibly active individual -- a volleyball and mountain biking coach, a rock climber, SCUBA diver and a lindy hopper.

Her friends and family have created a crowdfunding campaign to her recovery and to fund the prostheses that will get her back doing the things she loves -- dancing, climbing, biking, and going on adventures. If you would like to support, head to Emily's GoFundMe page.

We don't know Emily, but she sounds like a total bad ass and a cool person. We wish her a speedy recovery and hope to get an update about her first (rock) step soon.
