Boston Bill" Hansbury, who hails from, you might imagine, Boston.
Bill is 73 years young and started his involvement in active sports as
a runner, in 1968. He races for many years and this include 50
marathon (26.3 mi) and many hundreds of road races.
On Oct. 2, 2007, his 70th birthday, Bill lost his right leg to MRSA,
a Staph infection. In typical fashion, Bill worked his way back into
the two sports he loves. Running and cycling. Today he competes in
road running races and cycles 6 to 7 days per week with the St.
Petersburg Bicycle Club.
Because of his desire to resume his
sports and did so quickly he is always in call to visit new amputees
and show them how they too can get back into action and recover the
life they love. His motto "Life With an Attitude" is the message he
takes to hospitals and on his speaking engagements.
Bill is founder of the non-profit Boston Bill Foundation and raises
money to supply prosthetics to those unable to afford them.
