A SMARTRISK Hero - Georgina Hurst
Georgina suffered a broken neck after the driver of a car she was a passenger in drove dangerously fast, causing it to lose control and crash into an oncoming vehicle.
After being told she would never walk again, Georgina has shown strong determination to walk with the aid of crutches and last year realised her dream of walking down the aisle as her brother’s bridesmaid.
Georgina raised £5000 from a sponsored walk in 2006 and works with SMARTRISK, speaking to young people about her injury and how it could have been prevented. She said: “I’m thoroughly enjoying my work with SMARTRISK and if I can make just one person sit up and take notice it may be one life saved”.
