Kirk Thomas CEO/Founder at Outdoors Without Limits

Kirk knows what it's like to be knocked down by a disability. On November 27, 1992, Kirk was making his way back to his truck after a morning deer hunt. A falling tree struck the 6-foot-5-inch, 321-pound former college football player and hurled him into the air. When he regained consciousness, he was laying face up on the ground, his mouth filling with blood, with internal injuries and a shattered back. At 33, after months of hospitalization, operations, and rehab, he was a T-12 paraplegic with no movement from the waist downAfter the accident and his first hunting season in a wheelchair, a new dream began to etch itself into Kirk's mind. A renewed sense of purpose and his love of the outdoors led Thomas to create Wheelin' Sportsman of America. Kirk started Wheelin' Sportsman of America in Sept. 1996. In October 2000 it became Wheelin' Sportsman NWTF and he was involved with that until July 2007. His organizations have held in excess of 1,000 events and hosted more than 10,000 disabled.
