My Nonprofit Reviews
James Murtha III
Review for High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, Truckee, CA, USA
I am a 31-year-old quadriplegic from Michigan. My entry level is C4 incomplete tetraplegia. I have pretty decent movement with biceps, shoulder movement is okay but still need some work, and I can rotate my wrist outward; but that's pretty much it and no movement in my legs; trunks pretty weak too.
Needless to say, there's not a lot of options for cardio aerobic activity. Particularly the kind I enjoy; being that I am a former triathlete and outdoor enthusiast. Seated aerobics really is not my speed.
The High Fives NPO foundation is supporting my efforts to gain more cardio fitness through helping me obtain better exercise equipment that suits my abilities and preferences towards a more involved high-intensity workout.
My ultimate goal is to complete a marathon in a hand cycle within the next 2 years and I hope to see the crew from High Fives at the finish line!
