Community Fund a FreeWheel for Nicholas Miller
My name is Nicholas Miller I broke my C5 vertebrae in 2015, and I am an incomplete quadriplegic. Before I broke my neck in 2015 I was very active. Whether it was Sports through school, or physically demanding work I was always active. After I broke my neck in 2015 I was unaware of the Adaptive community. I sat at home depressed thinking this was it for me I got to just sit in this chair the rest of my life, I don’t get to have any more fun. I don’t get to run around the yard with my kids I don’t get to throw a football with my kids and I sat there dwelling on these things and lost control of my weight, going from 235 lbs. leaving the hospital to 320 lbs. in just a year-and-a-half I thought my life was over. That’s when I was introduced to the Adaptive Sports community specifically quad rugby. After being involved with quad rugby I realized I needed to make a change! Not just for me but for my kids too. Since finding out about the Adaptive community it gave me a new hope, and open my eyes to the possibilities that was still within an Arms Reach as long as I was willing to work for it, I’ve started losing weight and I’m down to 280 pounds. So with this being said I feel like any obstacle life throws at me I can overcome and I will overcome I feel this gives me the opportunity to prove that to my children so that way they never give up so that way they put 100% into everything they do.
Nicholas will be participating in the LIMBitless Challenge 2018 at Table Rock. The FreeWheel will allow Nicholas to safely tackle the rough terrain of Table Rock with more ease.
We at The Steadfast Foundation want to help provide Nicholas a FreeWheel Wheelchair attachment, BUT we need your help! As a community let us all come together to spread the word and to raise the funds needed for Nicholas’ FreeWheel.
