Rebekah took to her Instagram account to confirm her participation in a race this week in Italy. It was the first time she has participated in a race since having 17 surgical procedures and a leg amputated.

Rebekah stated.

Yesterday I ran in my first race since the bombing and even though I couldn’t get through the whole thing, the scenery of Italian countryside and the feeling of crossing the finish line….was absolutely incredible.

Next time I get blown up the terrorists should do a better job. They may have taken my leg but they have given me an insane amount of determination in its place.

Motivational stuff! We wish Rebkah all the best for the future.
