We are thrilled to announce the return of the "World's Fastest Amputee," Reggie Showers to McKeever's First Ride, an OPAF First Clinic for Adaptive riding! Former World Champion drag motorcyclist and current snowboarding competitor and trainer, Reggie will team up with Dale as motivational speakers and MFR heroes!
This will undoubtedly create more excitement and voltage than the Gwinnett Fairgrounds arena can handle! Both of these guys are beastly overcomers and crowd favorites! While Dale lost his legs in Military service to his country, and has gone on to help dignify and house all Veterans, Reggie lost his legs in an accident at 13, and can speak poignantly and powerfully to our younger guests.
We look for 2015 to be the year that has everything--a Military hero, a Pro athlete, plus the horse stars of the hit TV show, Sleepy Hollow! A day of fun, fellowship, and networking, and success is in the bag!
