You know the story – sweet Southern girl moves to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming an actress. Its so common we forget the guts it takes.
Then there’s Katy Sullivan, an Alabama native who moved here to act, with the added predicament of having been born with no legs. Guts? Maybe thats sheer insanity!
But Katy’s story goes one step further. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, she decided to start running. (and to think people are impressed by Ken Bob Saxton, who has run countless marathons barefoot… Katy’s running without legs!)
And she now has Olympic aspirations.
My friend and I were complaining about how hard our life was, and she literally ran past us on her carbon fiber legs. We stopped walking and stared at her as she blew past us.
Renee saw this as a sign – that whatever problems she might have, nothing should hold her back, and she decided to shoot this profile of of Katy so that more people could be inspired.
Yeah. It worked.
On February 3rd, Lululemon and Just Bee are having a Gala event in Santa Monica, with proceeds going towards helping Katy go the Olympics. This is a women only event! (details here)
Katy is also looking for a sponsors to help support her running efforts. And she’s seeking decent movie or TV roles. If you have leads on either, or any other PR requests, contact Renee at [email protected]
