A New Way of Sledding: Paraplegic Father Attaches Sled to Wheelchair

A Chalfont, Pennsylvania, father didn't let his disability stop him from enjoying the snow with his daughter after the blizzard of 2016.

Glen Dick, who is paralyzed from the chest down, has a special wheelchair that he uses outdoors, his wife Monica Dick told NBC10.

“He misses out on a lot of things because of his disability, but he wanted to be a part of his daughter’s entertainment,” Monica said.

So, Glen attached a sled to his wheelchair for his six-year-old daughter Elaina, and the duo took off.

“It was a little scary, but it was fun,” Elaina said.

The pair is anxiously awaiting more snow so they can go riding together again.
