Ron Heagy broke his neck the day before his 18th birthday. Since that day, he has been a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down. While many would simply give up, Ron made another choice. He chose to get better rather than bitter. With that positive attitude he received a master’s degree, became an inspirational speaker, talented mouth painter, accomplished author, founder of a special needs camp, and is a loving and devoted father of 2 daughters.
For 25 years, he has inspired over two million individuals from his wheelchair or as he calls it, his chariot. From young children to seniors, those who hear him speak are captivated by the message of courage, strength and hope for the future. With his candid sense of humor and real life experiences, he teaches how to turn adversity into opportunity, and how each of us can overcome our individual limitations.
