I am a general contractor with a wife and family of boys, two of whom have substantial disabilities. One does Special Olympic type events and another does Paralympic type sports. I enjoy spending time with our family and our grandchildren. We are involved in our community, church and our jobs. I sing three of four Sundays in our church in a small piano type group, and also in a choral ministry that has a powerful message on the life of Christ.
I set up an adapted sports camp in our town for athletes in our state with a lower limb disability to learn how to play adapted sports. I coordinate a wheelchair basketball team. I have set up adapted sporting events for several years. I am involved with other groups to set up events throughout the year for these athletes. I compete in road racing and marathons on a hand cycle for awareness of adapted sports. l also do part of an annual ride across Iowa on my handcycle and regular bicycle.
