Visit the Volvo for Life Awards website to vote for one of the real-life heroes who are changing the world, like yogi Matt Sanford. Here is an excerpt of his story: “When only thirteen years old, Matthew survived a catastrophic car accident that killed his father and sister and left him paralyzed from the chest down. For twelve painful years afterward, he followed the advice of doctors: forget and forgo the lower half of his body. But then Matthew began studying Iyengar yoga to alleviate his physical suffering and find an inner sense of peace and harmony. It worked. Now forty-two years old, Matthew has become one of the foremost teachers in an adaptive yoga course for people living with a variety of disabilities: Mind Body Solutions. Matthew founded Mind Body Solutions (MBS) in 2001 to help people connect their minds more distinctly with their bodies.” Three winners receive $100,000 to the charity of their choice so vote now at http://www.volvoforlifeawards.com/cgi-bin/iowa/english/vote/quality/index.html#.
