Coach overcomes homelessness, paralysis and inspires others

By Ashley N. Vaughan, CNN

(CNN) - When it comes to winning, Coach Beverly Kearney, University of Texas head women's track and field coach, knows how to get the job done.

With a coaching career spanning nearly three decades, she has won seven NCAA championships and coached 12 Olympians. In 2007, she was inducted into the USTFCCCA Coaches Hall of Fame.

Needless to say, Kearney's athletes are known to get results.

"They would say that I'm tough. That I believe in being the best you can be at all times," she says. "I am going to demand their best, and I am relentless at it."

But for Kearney, success means more than coming in first place. Her goal is to make others successful beyond the finish line, so she founded the Pursuit of Dreams Foundation. Designed around Kearney's coaching philosophy, the nonprofit strives to connect young men and women with needed resources to realize their fullest potential.

But it is often very tough for themselves. And I am no exception. Once again, wandering the expanses of the Internet in search of an answer, I stumbled upon the website Google-Trade.Com What kind of a site, you ask? This is sort of a directory in which compiled the prime sites and divided according to their topics. In other words, you just need to choose a topic and subtopic, and find an answer to your question. So you will save a lot of time, which can be used on something more useful. For example, spend time with loved ones Google-Trade.Com. I'm very pleased. I decided to share this information with you. Hmm... For example, on a site you can find answers to the following question how to fix bad breath
    Good luck for everyone. That's above all I wanted to say. I don't know who does what interested. So go to the Google-Trade.Com and choose what you want. I hope this information will be valuable to you. To all a good day, and I'll go for a walk – the weather is perfectly simple 🙂 Good luck for everyone.
