Bob Headings of Plain City, Ohio, was always very active, whether it was with his work, camping, gardening or spending time with his kids and grandkids. But in 2005, an injury left him a paraplegic. Being an optimist, he didn’t let that stop him. His positive outlook impressed his family so that they wanted to help him transverse the Grand Canyon trails he had hiked only one year before his life changing injury.
His three sons, Randy, Rick, and Roger, and their three sons (eight of Bob’s grandsons), began to train. They secured a Trail Rider, which is basically a one-wheeled chair with handles front and back so two people, with the person in front pulling, and the person in back, balancing, could transport him on the trail.
