Three years after being paralyzed for second time, Hellmold finishes Mickelsen 2-mile walk

After getting paralyzed and having to learn to walk again not once but twice in his lifetime (the second time in 2011), Cottonwood resident Pete Hellmold was able to start, and finish, the 2-mile walk/run portion of the 2014 Brian Mickelsen race, thanks to his self-admitted hard-headedness and the help and support of people he has met in Cottonwood and Sedona.
