CAN STILL FLY
WHY ROLL WHEN YOU CAN WALK?
Victims of senseless gun violence bound to wheelchairs believe that this is how they have to spend the rest of our lives. I would like to be an inspiration for anyone in a chair who's willing to give themselves a chance, and Put Those Chairs Down and Get Up! With motivation, exercise, and 100% dedication - You Can Walk!

SUPPORT IS THE KEY
Everyone knows someone in a chair. My goal is to get the word out to those in chairs who have no hope. To bring together those who have actually overcome the obstacle of being in a chair and those who believe that walking again will be impossible. If we can come together and provide a strong support system for those in chairs, state of the art workout equipment, physical therapists, and a facility where the program can be centralized, we can change lives of people who have no hope of walking in the future.

A LIVING TESTIMONY
I am living proof that with dedication and exercise it is possible to walk again. I was shot and paralyzed in May of 99, given a wheelchair and no hope of ever walking again. This is why I want to spread the idea that anyone who's been a victim of gun violence and is now in a wheelchair can recover and learn to fly again. I want to help others around the country who have experienced what I've experienced to become whole again. I want each person who's in a chair due to gun violence to know that there is a community where they can begin to heal and put their lives back together.

FLYING IS ONLY A STEP AWAY
With your support, time, and donation we can change lives. The Broken Winggz Foundation's initial goal is to meet and greet those who may need assistance, to travel around the country speaking and inspiring those in chairs to begin to believe in themselves and the possibility of walking again. Broken Winggz will service those in chairs by helping to build their self esteem and give them the hope that they can walk again, while creating a community of people who can relate to each other every step of the way. We want to inspire those who've been victims of gun violence and ensure them that their lives are not over. The Long term goals of Broken Winggz Foundation will be to provide facilities, physical therapists, and emotional support to give hope to those who have none. Regardless of your situation, together we can get through this-BROKEN WINGGZ CAN STILL FLY!!
