My name is Robert A Rieck Jr. I am a C-5 quadriplegic who is also a Provisional License Alcohol & Drug Counselor who has been playing wheelchair rugby for 10+ years now. As a C-5 quadriplegic, I find myself breaking stereotypes, perceptions and low expectations within my community in Lincoln, Nebraska.

A commonly shared mistaken understanding about quadriplegics is they are not able to voluntarily move any of their four limbs. This is not true. I do have significant limitations using only 1 to 2 muscles out of the 35 muscles in a human arm but I have not used my limitations as justification to not push in my manual rugby chair for competition and for meaningful fundraisers – I do the opposite! Push! Push! Push! Give! Give! Give!

On October 29, 2017, I am wheeling my manual rugby wheelchair in Lincoln's Good Life Halfsy Marathon – a total of 13.1 miles.

Wheel you help me roll across the finish line with your financial gift before June 30, 2017? Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar, so its impact for animals is doubled!
