The annual Visions of Victory Gala is planned for April 16th at the Murat Egyptian Room at the Old National Centre in downtown Indianapolis, where we’ll be enjoying food, drinks, gambling, a silent auction and glimpses of the great competitions that have gone on all year through with athletes from the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana Sports Program. This year we will be honoring Cheryl Angelelli with the Victory Award. Cheryl suffered a spinal cord injury as a teenager when she broke her neck practicing a new racing dive in 1983. Despite the challenges of living as a quadriplegic, Angelelli turned stumbling blocks into stepping stones and turned tragedy into triumph. In 1998, Angelelli returned to competitive swimming after a 15-year absence. Just two years later, she earned a spot on the 2000 U.S. Paralympic Swimming Team and competed at the Paralympic Games in Sydney. She then went on to make the 2004 U.S. team and competed in Athens, Greece, where she won two bronze medals (200m & 4x50m freestyle relay) and served as team co-captain.
Amazingly, four years later, Angelleli won two silver medals at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing, China. At the 2010 IPC Swimming World Championships in Eindhoven, Netherlands, Angelelli took home one gold medal (200 IM) and two silver medals (100m freestyle and 200m freestyle).Angelelli’s success in the pool and in life is the subject of a documentary film entitled “Untold Dreams.”
Be with us to welcome Cheryl to Indianapolis and to help raise funds to support all the great competitions in the year ahead of the athletes at RHI Sports Program. And, don’t forget Broad Ripple Sertoma will be there to provide all kinds of (legal) gambling fun!
