Claire Lomas crossed the finish line of the London Marathon on May 8th, sixteen days after the other 36,000 runners started the race.
In 2007, Claire was injured in a horse riding accident. She has been paralyzed from the chest down since the accident. With the help of a ReWalk bionic suit and two canes, she began walking in January 2012.
She finished the marathon in 16 days, averaging 2 miles per day. She was accompanied by her husband, Dan Spincer.
Her walk of the London Marathon helped raise $100,000 for spinal cord research. See her story at Yahoo and ABC news.
