Description

Please join us on May 5, 2018 for a Hanger Clinic adaptive running and mobility clinic!

Hanger Clinic Colorado and Colorado School of Mines have joined together to offer a free running clinic to amputees of all ages and ability levels.

This year we are pleased to announce that Nick Roumonada and Shaneis Kehoe are returning as our expert adaptive running coaches.

ABOUT NICK

Following his amputation, caused by bacteria meningitis at the age of 13, Nick lived a very inactive lifestyle because of his family’s inability to afford the specialized prosthetic equipment he needed to get back and compete in sports. Since the age of 30, after receiving his first running leg from the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Nick’s been and done everything ACTIVE. Starting in 2009, Nick ran his first 5k, first 10k, first half marathon and first full marathon all within a year. Since then he’s gone on to compete in triathlon, had podium finishes with able bodied athletes in 5k and 10k running distance races & triathlons, and has most recently competed with Team USA at 2 ITU World Championships and accomplished one of his biggest goals; Ironman, for the second time! Nick raced over 140 miles of swimming, biking and running, crossing the finish line of Ironman, AZ, in a time of 11hrs and 13min. When he isn’t actively training for his next race, Nick works with Hanger Clinic and AMPOWER trying to make sure that amputees across the globe know the challenges they face living with limb loss or limb difference shouldn’t keep them from living full, incredible lives. His motto has always been “Take what you’ve been given and run with it!

ABOUT SHANEIS

Shaneis Kehoe is currently a Clinical Resident with Hanger Clinic in Colorado Springs. She recently graduated with her Masters in Prosthetics and Orthotics from Loma Linda University. While in graduate school, Shaneis qualified and raced for the US triathlon team in 2014-2016. During her time on the team, she regularly witnessed US paratriathletes defy the odds and uplift the international triathlon community. Inspired, Shaneis sat for her USA Triathlon (USAT) coaching certification and specialized in adaptive training. In early 2017, she was appointed to the USAT Paratriathon Committee, where she hopes to continue to grow the presence of paratriathlon within the adaptive sports community. Shaneis' favorite aspect of her career in O&P and coaching adaptive athletes is being a part of each unique pursuit of mobility, at any level and aspiration.
