About April Holmes
In January 2001, April Holmes was involved in a train accident in Philadelphia, which resulted in the loss of her left leg below the knee. Even before learning to walk on her new prosthesis, April knew she not only wanted to learn to run, but she formulated a three part dream in her mind while in the University of Pennsylvania hospital. She wanted to wear the USA Paralympic uniform at the next Games; she wanted to be the fastest amputee in the world; and she wanted to win plenty of Gold medals. Ms. Holmes has accomplished those dreams many times. While she continues to compete around the world, April is also a motivational speaker. Her lifelong desire to help others in need, prompted her to start the April Holmes Foundation. With her eyes set firmly on the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio, April wants not only stand on the highest platform, but afford some other athletes the opportunity to stand there as well by providing training grants. After her athletic career, Ms. Holmes plans to use her MBA in Marketing and life experiences to write a book, continue her speaking career, and raise money for the April Holmes Foundation, Inc.
