Captain Sarah Evans U.S Air Force, RET

Sarah Evans was serving in Afghanistan in 2012 when she was diagnosed with cancer, eventually leading to the amputation of her left leg at the hip. It was during her recovery at Brooke Army Medical Center that Sarah was introduced to adaptive sports. She has since participated in several Move United Warfighters events, including completing the entire 26.2 mile Bataan Memorial Death March on crutches. “My personal favorite sport is adaptive Crossfit mainly because of the community, but also because it helps me remain physically fit and in shape” said Sarah. She also enjoys the emotional benefits of adaptive sports. “Participating in sports has increased my self esteem and has allowed me to feel confident in everything I set out to do, whether it be physically, emotionally or professionally,” she said. A graduate of The Citadel, Sarah works for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a Budget Analyst. She lives in Florida with her family.
