Join us for the ANNUAL RELAY PASTA DINNER on Friday, April 27th from 5:30 to 8 PM at the American Legion in Carmel. Tickets available HERE for $35


This is the 8th annual Relay for Rachael, the goal is to be the fastest team and raise the most money to help with ongoing caregiving and physical therapy costs for Rachael Short after a car accident in 2010 left her a quadriplegic.

Most of Rachael’s days are spent exercising and moving as she tries to gain back as much strength as possible. She is able to continue on her journey from paralysis because of people like you who donate to her recovery. Progress is slow but continues to move forward, not only does your donation give her hope but allows her to gain back strength and independence along with helping her stay in good health mentally and physically.

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” - Confucius

The runners are training hard and hit highway 1 in part of the Big Sur International Marathon on Sunday, April 29th to run their hardest for her recovery and she is forever grateful for their amazing support and yours!

Over 7 years into this journey, Rachael has made huge strides towards recovery. Constant rehabilitation consumes the majority of her days, with her free time spent focusing on her gallery in Carmel and her photography. Rehab is the most important to Rachael, which requires an immense amount of resources. Supporting her in this endeavor is our goal and is what motivates us to put one foot in front of the other. Thank you for you support. More on Rachael's recovery HERE
