Hello Everyone, I am Joey Wells and today I am asking for your help to allow me to make a long awaited dream come true. I was born with Myotubular Myopathy, it is a rare disease that makes the muscles not just weak, but makes them regress at a fast pace.
Living life wheelchair bound in small towns such as my home Yorktown, Texas and the village called a town Nome, North Dakota there weren't any adaptive sports, but that never stop my love for competing. When i turned twenty one I found out about power soccer and immediately formed a team with a few other friends that i met in the same position. That moment opened up a whole new world of possibilities like being a part of a team, becoming a teammate, earning role of captain, winning championships (came close yet still aludes me), winning mvps (won 6, but whose counting), being voted for sportsmanship award ( the one i got felt great, but it is really a team award that i accepted on team's behalf) and most importantly working together not only for each other, but for all the people who need someone to show them nothing is impossible your dream can come true if you really give your all for it.
Now that you know lil about me here is the next dream I am working to reach........Playing Power Soccer for Team USA's National Select Team in the 2015 World Cup. I will be going to training camps every few months to compete for a spot on the  roster to help bring back Team USA's 3rd straight Gold Medal. It will be a rigorous hard working journey that will be worth every second of training. I will be doing mandatory drills every week that I have to report to the team.

I am up for the challenge to make the team now I ask you, are you up to the challenge to join my team?????

You can be a part of my team with any and every donation you make. The proceeds will go towards traveling to training camps, to World Cup and wheelchair repairs.

Your help will make a great impact not just for me, but for the people who never knew these dreams can be reality. I also want to add your help will be tremendously appreciated.

I ask once again are you up to the Challenge to join my team???

If so lets get going to work together and make this goal to make USA goals!!!!!!!
