Robyn Benincasa selected as CNN Hero for 2014

CNN has selected San Diego firefighter, Robyn Benincasa, as a CNN Hero. Inspired by her own medical challenge of two total hip replacements, Benincasa started the non-profit Project Athena Foundation to help women who have had serious medical setbacks live their adventurous dreams as part of their recovery. 
“I’m honored to be chosen a CNN Hero, but the Athenas (Survivors) who reach their recovery goal of a Project Athena adventure are the true heroes,” Benincasa said. “The mission of the foundation is to put Athenas in a position to inspire and amaze themselves – to be the very best they are today.”  
Benincasa is a World Champion Adventure racer, ten-time Ironman finisher with two podium finishes at the Hawaii World Championships and holds three Guinness World Records. She also shares her inspiring perspective through her World Class Teams Teambuilding and Leadership keynotes.
