The inspirational story of Kristen Cameron ’08, the former women’s ice hockey team standout and Mercyhurst College assistant hockey coach who was left partially paralyzed after a drunken driver hit her while she was biking, is the latest ESPN Journeys & Victories feature – and was written by ESPN.com editor Kaitee Daley ’09.
Daley chronicles the accident and Cameron’s impressive efforts along her journey to once again be part of the sport she loves.
“There are so many people that I don’t even know that help out,” says Cameron in the piece. “Those people, from what I’m told, all think that I inspire them and to me, if I inspire them, that’s what motivates me to keep working.”
“Bowdoin’s athletic community is tight-knit and incredibly supportive,” says Daley. “So many of Kristen’s teammates and friends have stepped up to help out and I’m just happy I could use my platform at ESPN and passion for journalism to make people outside of Bowdoin aware of just how special she is.”
