Raisin Hope For Brain Injuries - Part 2
 
Saul Raisin is a former American professional cyclist, who raced with a French team in Europe for several years. In 2006, Raisin had a near-fatal crash while racing in France. It left him with a severe brain injury and after six years he has made a remarkable recovery and is now attempting to place himself into the Ironman Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii.

Saul has qualified for the semi-finals of the Kona Inspired contest and is now reaching out to you and others to help him participate in the Ironman Triathlon.

Saul Raisin's Message:

On a mission to promote public awareness and understanding of people with disability as a result of brain injury, it is my dream to be to be one of the first documented people to come back from a brain injury as severe as mine and complete the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii. The top two entries in this round will get an automatic slot into the race. Please help me on my mission and vote as many times as possible on my video.

Thank you,

Saul Raisin
