How a Boy with a Disability Finds a Way to Excel
Andrew has trouble walking because of his Cerebral Palsy. He found skiing at the age of seven and with great determination, learned how to ski. Andrew Can Ski tells about Andrew’s amazing journey from needing to hold onto a pole for three years, to skiing on his own and becoming good enough to try and make the United States Adaptive Alpine Race Team.
Andrew Haraghey continues to train and hopes to represent the United States in the 2018 Disabled Winter Games in PyeongChang, Korea. His first podium finish in a national race in Park City, UT was a major stepping stone. Read about how he got to this place and overcame his Cerebral Palsy.
About the Author
I am Andrew’s mom (Sheryl Haraghey) and his number one fan. Andrew and the students I teach as an adaptive ski instuctor have inspired me to write and illustrate my first book. I hope there are many more to come and I can spread the word about all the amazing people I have met with “special abilities” because of Andrew.
