Nothing Can Slow Down Holly Koester

Holly Koester has been in a wheelchair since 1990, but that has never slowed her down. She was the first person in a wheelchair to finish a marathon in all 50 states, was recently inducted into the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame, and even made it on the front of a Cheerios box!

Holly is positive, determined, and passionate. She was a softball payer in her younger days and decided to give adaptive sports a shot.
