Wins the Race


Donated by:
Sarah McCab

Sarah McCabe, CLC student since 1999, has beautifully captured the essence of a tortoise’s persistence and determination through her latest piece, “Steady Wins the Race.” Sarah, who started conductive education when she was just two years old, is currently a graduate student at the University of Illinois, and is on the brink of beginning her professional career in human resources. Sarah, too, personifies these steadfast characteristics which have helped her to keep climbing and reaching for her dreams - despite her physical challenges – proving that goal setting, hard work, and a positive attitude are essential for moving mountains.

This piece is showcased in a classic frame and will surely add a beautiful touch to any home or office while reminding all to persist in the face of challenges.

Our Mission

To provide opportunities for individuals with motor challenges to achieve optimal physical, cognitive, and social independence through the application and promotion of conductive education principles.
