Amputee cyclist finishes Fla.-Wash. ride
SPOKANE, Wash. - A Florida man has arrived to a hero's welcome, biking into Spokane, Wash., more than five weeks and 3,200 miles after he set off from Miami on a quest to help a 1-year-old boy born without hands or forearms. Double arm amputee, tri-athlete and motivational speaker Hector Picard reached Spokane Saturday afternoon, completing the journey he began June 8 - to bike across the country and raise money for Jameson Davis' prosthetic arms. Picard tells KREM-TV he heard about Jameson six months ago and felt compelled to help. Picard lost his arms in a 1992 electrical accident. Picard says his second goal was to prove "anything is possible."Jameson's mother, Brooke, told KREM, "We can't even wrap our minds around what he's doing. It's incredible."
