ABOUT JORDAN THOMAS:

In August 2005, at age 16, Jordan Thomas was scuba diving in the Florida Keys when a boat propeller struck him. He lost both of his legs from the calf down. After a period of therapy and rehabilitation, he returned to high school in Chattanooga, Tenn., rejoining his teammates on the golf and bowling teams for his senior year. He will soon begin his junior year at the College of Charleston.

While hospitalized after his injury, Thomas was touched by the kids he saw who would never be able to achieve their dreams because they did not have the money to continue their recovery and rehabilitation. Thomas felt great sadness about these children's situation and grateful for all the loving support he have received during his recovery. With that in mind,
