Return to the Sky – PARAMOTOR Flying!!!
Before my injury, I loved to fly! I remember the moment when Charles and Annica Bryan said the word “trike” to me at the High Fives Foundation’s 2012 “Three Thousand Words” fund raising event. I’ve been dreaming about / working hard in my recovery to once again feel the freedom of flight under a canopy ever since! This webisode chronicles the fruition of that dream!!!
Just under three years ago, I began this journey with zero feeling or movement below my belly button and through hard work, choosing to recover, believing I could manifest movement, and with the love of my incredible wife Shawna, the High Fives Foundation, Spine Nevada, Sponsors, friends, family, and an incredible community of supporters, I am honored to say that I have earned my feeling and movement all the way back down to my knees! I believe in 120% recovery, and on February 3rd 2013, I connected the dreams of yesterday, to the goals of today!!! Ask me if I am fired up?!!!:)
