Amputee raises funds for baby born without arms



MIAMI, Flor.,- Twenty years ago Hector Picard was in an electrical accident that caused the amputation of his two arms. Instead of focusing on the negative, Picard placed his energy in participating in numerous triathlons, marathons and other events for different charities. His mindset on his challenges in life is “Overcome…don’t stop living.” His most current and biggest endeavor yet, happens this June 8th. Picard, in a specially made bike, will ride 3,200 miles from Miami, FL. to Spokane, WA., in an event called “Hands for Baby Jameson”. This event is for a baby boy, Jameson Davis, who was born without hands or forearms, to help his able family afford his first prosthetics.
