A Real Life Super Hero

You already know that I think Andrew Nielsen is the bravest person I’ve ever met. He once again rappelled down a building in his wheelchair! Most people would never attempt something like this – let alone doing it strapped into a chair. It was also quite windy that day, but that didn’t deter Andrew. He bounced off the wall a few times and got a few bumps and bruises. Part of the adventure he told me.

Well, I’ve always admired Andrew for another reason too. You see, his rappel last Thursday almost didn’t happen due to safety concerns accessing the roof. Andrew did what he always does. He overcame an obstacle by not giving up and finding another way to do it. That’s how Andrew deals with difficulties he encounters in life. We can all learn something from that.

Andrew became the 1st person ever to rappel up and then down a building to raise money for the #EasterSealsON! He couldn’t access the roof, so he agreed to be pulled up the building in his wheelchair and harness before rappelling back down. He bounced up and down like a yo-yo as they pulled him up but he didn’t mind. He had the time of his life!

I am so proud to call this man my friend!
