Your Real Champion: King of the Road

Your Real Champion for the week of August 8, 2021, was Jeremy King, a CRNA (certified registered nurse anesthetist).

Jeremy was engaged to be married when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He recovered from surgery but continues to struggle with balance, leaving him confined to a wheelchair. His wife Chelsie sought the talents of a fellow school teacher Matt Zigler (pictured below), who worked with students to create “WheeStroll” – an adaptive vehicle that combines a stroller and wheelchair giving Jeremy the independence that allows him to take his five-month-old son for a walk.

Each week we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community. Know someone who should be featured? Nominate them now!
