Kayla’s Story

Kayla Montgomery is one of the fastest youth distance runners in the country, despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis, which is most commonly referred to as MS, is a disease that affects the feelings in the feet and legs. Her story is uniquely amazing because when she runs and competes, she loses all feelings in her legs. Her coach became her biggest motivator as well as her support system. He met her at the end of every single finish line to catch her because she could not come to a coordinated finish. The story is absolutely incredible and an inspiration to anyone who is suffering from a disability.
