Born and raised in Springtown, TX, Lawrence “Mayor” Green joined the United States Army as a Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic in 2008.
On March 29, 2015, while riding his motorcycle, Lawrence was struck head-on by a reckless driver. He was thrown into the curb and then launched into a small tree and rolled down the street. He spent the next month in a medically induced coma during which he had 9 surgeries. One of them was to amputate both legs above his knees. He was on Dialysis and given a 3% chance of survival. When Lawrence woke up, his first question was “Where is my motorcycle?”
High Fives was introduced to Lawrence through the Adaptive Training Foundation (ATF). ATF has been an essential part of Lawrence’s fitness goals, allowing him to participate in Wheelchair Basketball, Powerlifting, Wheelchair Rugby, Mono-skiing, Adaptive Snowmobiling, and Para Ice Hockey.
