EXCEPTIONAL ATHLETES

Christopher Levi

Holbrook, New York adaptive Army veteran Christopher Levi served two overseas tours in Afghanistan and Iraq in 2006 and 2007. But an ambush while heading to Baghdad’s Green Zone in 2008 forever changed his life. In an instant, he lost both legs above the knee and sustained damage to his hand. Trying hand cycling to improve his fitness upon his return to New York, a chance encounter encouraged him to ride Face of America in 2013. He’s since been a regular participant with a new confidence that not only gave him a better outlook on life, but also led him into a challenging business profession.
