"Peer mentoring showed me the power of what somebody could do for somebody else"
Lenny acquired a T4 Spinal Cord Injury during a surgical procedure in 2016. Prior to his accident, Lenny was in the army, and is now in the car business. He enjoys Wheelchair AFL and Rugby, eating healthy, and socialising.
Lenny reflects on his own experience with a mentor, and how it made him feel less isolated through his journey. “They showed me the power of what somebody could do for somebody else,” he says. For this reason, he feels like he could also give back. He also just enjoys having a chat with people.
Lenny uses a manual chair and independently drives his wagon.
