“I was paralyzed in Afghanistan when a 250 lb IED blew up my truck. Since I’m wheelchair-bound regular activities have been a struggle for me as well as outdoor activities. There were a lot of things that I thought I couldn’t do anymore outside. All of that changed when I met Anthony Netto Founder of the Stand Up and Play Foundation, and he got me into a Paragolfer. That machine changed my life as well as my family’s lives. I use it for everything now. I play outside with my kids, go to the range, walk my kids to school, walk the dogs, go to the beach, I’m involved with my son’s football practice, I use it when I take my service dog to training, take my kids for rides on the back of it, play sports with my kids and their friends, go for walks with my wife (Hillary Wayman) and the list goes on. I don’t know what I would do without the Paragolfer. It puts a smile on my face every time I open my garage and see it. I tell everyone else I see about it, who was injured in the military, with mobility issues. Semper Fi.

Sincerely, Staff Sergeant Jared Wayman, Texas.
