Christi "LynX" Rougoor Performs Wheelchair Bungee Jump

The following clip, filmed recently in Whistler, B.C., is of Christi Rougoor bungee jumping with her wheelchair.  Rougoor connected with 9Lives Adventures, a company that specializes in assisting people with disabilities to participate in extreme sports.  9Lives held a contest to have someone win the opportunity to perform the feat and show that people with disabilities can still be adrenaline junkies.  With Rougoor, a high school teacher, having a very active lifestyle prior to her accident, this bungee jump was an experience that will help her reclaim a part of who she was before her accident.  Enjoy the clip!
