Born with a with a right club foot, Scott Sperling had no feeling or circulation in either feet. These issues would lead to many hospital visits, bone infections and eventually amputations.
Each summer, involved with local fundraising activities over the last 15 years, Scott participates with a group of sponsors and supporters who give topless jeep rides to over 200 campers and staffers. Many of the campers have disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida or Down Syndrome. Most never had a chance to ride off road.
In fact, it wasn’t until several years ago that Scott finally wore shorts to this event on the recommendation of the staff physician. Furthermore, he felt that Scott could be a role model to those campers. Surely, he could give them the confidence in that nothing in life is impossible!
His buddy is Matt Amos. Scott and Matt will be training with Jim Ikerd of Southern Ohio Diving Academy, OH.
