Walk and Roll Foundation
Chelsie was born March 28, 1992 and grew up in Pacific Grove Ca. She was a typical child growing up in a small town enjoying life with her family and friends. Chelsie had a strong excitement towards dancing from the time she started walking. This desire to dance put her on her 1st dance team at the age of 3yrs old. By the time she was 4yrs old she was competing at the state and national levels, it would be uncommon for her to walk away without a trophy or taking 1st place.
Her whole life was about the art of dance. She loved nothing more than to be on stage with her team or even solo to entertain a crowd. Her senior year of High school she got in the car with a drunk driver. As a result of that they crashed head on into a tree. She Broke her back at L3 and had a blood clot at T2. This left her paralyzed from the belly button down and had 1 major surgery and 2 others.
When she awoke in the hospital and the reality began to set in about what had happen to her, she immediately began redesigning her goals. As she rolled out of the hospital 51 days later her mission began. Her accident and story had been a major focus of our local news stations and papers since it happened. The doors began opening faster then we could keep up with as the community, local law enforcement, schools and many organizations began hearing her story and asking her to share it. She has been actively traveling around California Speaking to teens. Among many topics, she shares about how the choices they make can affect them and those who they love for the rest of their lives. Chelsie has surfed twice, and also followed her dream with dance.
She's apart of the world first wheelchair hip hop dance team called Colours N Motion. Chelsie has started a foundation with her father Jon Hill called Walk and Roll Foundation their goal is to bring a Project Walk facility to Monterey Bay, CA. This has become her greatest mission in life, but she has always said, “ I will walk again and I will dance again”! If you were to meet her tomorrow or hear her message you would agree with us all… If anyone can do it, Chelsie will!
BONFIRE LESSON: "Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength."
