Nick's WheelChair Trike Project

Having a blue-collar job as a dumptruck-driver while being paralyzed from the chest down is no easy task. While many of us dread going to work in the morning, Nick Shortidge intends "...to help inspire people that life is all in what you make it". While most people can not do this type of work even when they are physically able to, he continues to do this on a daily basis paralyzed! Nick also runs a backhoe, welds, and does anything necessary to maintain his landscaping business after falling from a 50-foot tree in 2009.
        The purpose of this page is to raise enough money to build him a custom trike that will accommodate his wheelchair safely, and yet let him again feel the freedom of riding. This is not something that he can afford nor dreamed of asking anybody for, which is precisely why he deserves it. Please help us get this done!

"My situation is your inspiration!" ~Nick Shortidge
