Eric is passionate about sports despite having Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and very limited mobility. Playing, watching and coaching sports keeps him active and engaged in the things he loves. Eric has a bachelor's degree in PE Recreation and has been an assistant football coach at Bethel University for 9 years. He also volunteers at an elementary school. Eric enjoys hanging out with friends and family, many of whom enjoy organized road races. He thought that being a part of myTEAM TRIUMPH would be a great way to have this same experience. Some of his cousins push him in the races. Eric says, “God gave me my cousins to be my legs.”He never thought he would be able to do a race. Having been in a wheelchair since the age of 8 he had never run a race, but this year will be his fifth year racing with myTEAM TRIUMPH. Not only does he race, he is also the Captain Coordinator for myTEAM TRIUMPH.
