Former Los Angeles Police Officer Kristina Ripatti-Pearce, who's paralyzed from the chest down, just finished a cycling race across 14 states.
Ripatti's husband, Tim Pearce, who's also a police officer, completed the race by her side. The 3,000-mile race took them nine days to complete.
Although Ripatti was shot in the line of duty, her injuries have not keep her from fighting crime. She learned how to hand cycle and used the race to raise money to fight gang-related crime.
"I don't like people telling me what I can and can't do at all," Ripatti said. "If you tell me there is something I can't do, that's pretty much the quickest way to get me to do it. Despite the challenges and obstacles that you have in life, anything is possible."
"They're able to see that, and then try something more that they would not have tried before," Ripatti's husband said. "That's just a blessing."
