Six-year-old Katy Carpenter has a need for speed, and Powderhorn Elementary’s new Run Club is the solution.
“I can’t believe I can run that fast with a fake leg,” Katy said. “I can run as fast as a cheetah. I’m serious.”
Katy has a prosthetic right leg; doctors had to sever her leg at the knee when she was a baby.
“(The Run Club) helps me get better running, because I have to get used to it without a leg,” Katy said.
