Augusta Lee


Augusta Lee lost her left leg above the knee in May of 2012, due to cancer. She had no idea whether she would be able to walk a mile at the I WILL INSPIRE Charity Run less than a year later, but she certainly was going to try.
After building up her strength with lots of practice, Augusta accomplished her goal, crossing the finish line with a smile. “It was awesome,” she says, “to do something that was ‘normal’ for me before the cancer took my leg.” Days after finishing the I WILL INSPIRE mile, Augusta’s physical therapist asked her what she wanted to do next. “I told her that I’d like to dance again,” Augusta recalls. “That is, after I get back to golfing. So my therapist got out her iPad, we found some music, and the next thing I knew, I was doing the electric slide!”
