Bunny Bradley Scholarship Recipient 2011

We are so pleased to announce the recipient of the Bunny Bradley Pilates Scholarship 2011--Congratulations to Kim Desautels!

Kim found Pilates during her long road to recovery from cancer, and especially enjoyed taking classes from Bunny Bradley.  Here is a small excerpt from Kim's winning essay:

"As an occupational therapist that specializes in neurology (for almost 25 years), I have witnessed how the human body can create new neural pathways and heal in ways that sometimes defies traditional medicine in both the young and old.

My dream is to empower other women (and men!) who have experienced cancer or other debilitating diseases through special Pilates classes designed for them. It would be an extreme honor and privilege to be awarded this scholarship and carry on Bunny’s legacy, believing women with cancer can be whole again, as Bunny believed in me."

We thank everyone who submitted their essays for the scholarship.  Everyone's story left an impression and it was a difficult decision to make. We will be offering the scholarship again next year, and we encourage those who applied this year to reapply.
