On Saturday, March 28, hundreds of people descended on Anchor Point Indoor Archery, north of Riverton, to attend a benefit for Kara Hansen.
Kara was involved in a car accident on April 9, 2014, when her car was rear-ended and pushed into the path of an oncoming vehicle. The accident has left her body paralyzed, but not her spirit. She is working very hard to regain motion and strength to her physical body. The doctor’s had said she would never move again, but she has proved them wrong already and can now use her upper body.
