It was a ordinary Labor Day Weekend hiking trip up Mt. Charleston for six-year old Kai and her family. Ordinary until Kai stumbled and broke her arm.
Her mother and father, Amber & Andrew, were faced with getting Kai down the mountain, nearly three miles, to their car. Fortunately, there was a professional athlete training on the mountain at that specific time.
What a crazy, eventful, day! It started out as a fun hike up Mary Jane Falls, with the family, ended with Kai breaking her arm at the top of the mountain.. I'm SO beyond thankful for @mieshatate carrying her all the way down the mountain, there's no way I would have been able to do it myself. Miesha, you are a true life saver and I can't thank you enough for helping us out today! Kai is your newest #1 fan 💕
Enter former women’s UFC bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate Miesha offered to carry Kai down the hill. The rest is history.
We got the hear the full story from Kai’s parents, Andrew and Amber, as well as, Miesha, as they joined Chet, Spence & Kayla.
Tear jerker! Meet Kai the sweet little girl that kept me company down the mountain side, very upbeat despite her broken arm. And I just have to say this was one of the most rewarding days of my athletic career. And I also want to make a point that I have been told many times that I am "too buff" or "manly" that I should stop lifting weights, that it's "gross" and not attractive for a woman. I am so happy I never listened to the limitations others wanted to put on me and I hope that our youth knows that don't have to conform. That strength and beauty come from within! #BeStrong #BeCapable #BeWhatYouWant #NoRegrets #JustLove #PayItForward #GiveBack #Inspire
