Florida Runner Pushes Sister with Quadriplegia Across the 10K Finish Line Saturday at Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend

Brittney Clark from Pensacola, Fla., completed the 10K while pushing her younger sister Téa, who is a wheelchair user, at the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. After months of training for her first-ever 10K, Brittney fulfilled her sister’s dream of completing a runDisney race. Brittney pushed her sister, who has cerebral palsy, the entire 6.2 miles so Téa could earn a medal themed after her favorite movie, “Beauty and the Beast.”

In October 2016, after she had already signed up to run the 10K at Disney, Téa suddenly became ill and was airlifted to a Nashville hospital after complications with her baclofen pump, which is used to treat stiff muscles and spasms. Since then, she has been airlifted back to Nashville for more surgeries due to various life-threatening health complications.

Through it all, Téa has remained determined to make it to Disney for the race weekend. Just one week ago, she was in the ICU in Nashville and her top goal on her hospital room patient board read, “Make it to Disney.” Today, she accomplished that goal with the help of her sister.
