Savicki, who is a freelance sports journalist, disability advocate and small business entrepreneur, sustained a C6, 7 spinal cord injury in 1990 from a dive into the waters of Pensacola Beach, Fla., while in flight school to become an F-14 pilot. Since the injury, he's won 69 gold medals in the National Veterans Wheelchair Games, the largest annual wheelchair sports competition in the world and has become the only person to finish the Boston Marathon both on foot and in a wheelchair, a race he has completed 18 times since 1990.
"Sure, I knew there would be challenges after my accident, but it never stopped me from pursuing my passions. I got involved with this awareness project because I've been celebrating mobility for the greater part of my life, and I wish the world would join me, even if only for a month," said Savicki.
...
That van gave me mobility, and it gave me the self-confidence I never thought I'd experience again," said Savicki.
