While working as a skydiving instructor, Tyler was performing a routine landing after filming a guest complete their first tandem skydive from 10,000 feet. A canopy malfunction and failed parachute sent Tyler into the ground with tremendous force. This accident resulted in a traumatic brain injury, 2 months amnesia, and shattering both of his feet, resulting in the eventual amputation of both legs.

“This grant will help me pursue a goal that I had even prior to my injury. It will help me accomplish something that has never been done before. I hope that this achievement will not only give me a great sense of accomplishment but provide a catalyst for other people going through similar situations to look beyond what they are told can’t be done and establish what is actually possible with strong will and determination.“
