Parkite continues on after life-changing accident

When a skiing accident left professional skier and instructor Pelle Sederholm with a spinal-cord injury, he didn’t know if he’d ever walk again. Now, four years later, Sederholm is not only walking, he’s participating in today’s Summit Challenge 100-mile bike race.

When Sederholm woke from a 26-day coma four years ago, doctors told him he had broken his neck and suffered severe brain damage, and diagnosed him as an incomplete quadriplegic with limited mobility in his hands and legs.
