My name is Paul Stoiber. I'm 18 years old. I have Cerebral Palsy which mostly affects my legs. I can walk with the aid of a walker and I use a wheelchair and scooter to get around. I am currently a senior at Cherry Creek High School.
I will be participating in the 2018 Colfax Marathon on May 19, 2018. I will be riding the 5 K course in my wheelchair. I have been participating in a charity race event for the past 9 years and this will be my fifth time in this specific Colfax Marathon event. I have finished the course in all of my previous events. It was very hard. But I did finish the course. I have been training hard for this year's ride and I think that I am ready. Every year I have been one of the top teenage fundraisers.
My main goals are to finish the event and to raise money and awareness for an amazing charity that helps kids with disabilities compete in team sports! My goal for this year is to repeat as one of the top teenage fundraiser. All of the money that I raise from this event goes to the Colorado Sled Hockey Association.
My Colorado Avalanche Sled Hockey team recently competed in the USA Hockey National Disabled Festival in Chicago where we finished third. In March of 2017 we were champions of the first annual Hendrickson Foundation Sled Hockey Tournament in Minneapolis. And we were the 2016 USA Hockey Youth Sled National Champions.
Besides bike riding I like to play sled hockey, swim, ski, snowboard and skateboard. I play the trumpet in my high school concert band and jazz band as well as percussion in the Cherry Creek High School Marching Band.
