New Rugby Chair

I'm very pleased to say that I'm finally in the home stretch to raising enough funds for a new rugby wheelchair! I started campaigning for a new chair 3yrs ago and through a generous grant and even more generous friends and family donations I'm almost there! Thank you so much to those that have helped me along this journey! I'm truly so grateful for each and every one of your support! This sport is much more than a game for me, it's a way of life!

A little about me:

In 2003 I dove head first into a swimming pool and broke my neck resulting in a C6 spinal cord injury but that hasn't slowed me down or changed my attitude towards living a full and successful life! I was fortunate to find wheelchair rugby while I was still doing my inpatient rehabilitation therapy at TIRR Memorial Hermann and it was during this time that I fell in love with the game. In fact, as soon as I was cleared of my neck brace I started practicing with the local team. This sport is much more than just a game, it's a global brotherhood that I would truly be lost without. On the court we are all just as competitive and intense as any other able-bodied sport and off the court we're all able to share stories and real life experiences of what living life with  a disability is really like. The things we learn from each other are more valuable than gold at times. I'm extremely thankful that I found this sport right after my injury becasue it has made living life with a disability so much easier. I am now in my 17th season with the TIRR Texans and I still love it just as much as when I first started playing!

Thank you for support and know that I appreciate it greatly!!
