Holly Koester was an Army Captain with 9 years of service under her belt when she was involved in a civilian car accident, leaving her paralyzed without the use of her legs.

She has done more since her injury than most of us will in a lifetime. Competing in 23 National Veteran's Wheelchair Games, marathons in all 50 states as well as serving on the board of Paralyzed Veterans of America. Holly was honored as the fourth recipient of the Ralph W Braun "Spirit of Ability" award Friday afternoon for making such notable differences in the lives of people with physical disabilities.

Sam Schmidt, a former IndyCar driver who was paralyzed in a crash in 2000 presented the award to Holly. He says she is an inspiration to others because of her determination despite the overwhelming odds. The award is named in honor of the late Ralph Braun, who had muscular dystrophy but didn't let it stop him from inventing the first motorized scooter and wheelchair lift.

A 1,000 donation to the group of Holly's choice was also given to The Paralyzed Veteran's of America. Sam also hosted dozens of attendee's for "A Day at the Races" event, which allows people with physical disabilities VIP access to the race track.
