Paralympic Powerlifter Medalist at AADL!
While Mary Stack was born with a rare medical condition called pseudohypoparathyroidism, which limits her mobility, she has competed in a range of adaptive sports since the age of sixteen. As a measure of how far her ability and determination have taken her, Mary recently returned from the ParaPan American Games in Mexico with a bronze medal for lifting 280 pounds! This gave her the first women’s Paralympic powerlifting medal ever for US women at these games. Mary works as a Sports Coordinator at Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living and is training for the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. She will talk about this and other aspects of her life at the Malletts Creek Branch on Saturday, Dec. 10, 3-4:30 pm.
