Eric's Story


Eric was born with spina bifida, a defect where bones do not form properly around the spine. Eric has hydrocephalus, bi-lateral clubfoot, and is paralyzed from the knees down. Eric has had many surgeries to repair his club feet and place shunts to drain fluid in his brain. None of this stopped Eric from playing sled hockey, hand cycling, and wheelchair track and field. He aspires to be a Paralympian one day!


NOTHING stops Eric from doing the things he wants to do! The old saying, “Where there is a will, there is a way,” sums him up perfectly!

This is what we were meant to do.
