Schmidt Defies Limits with More Progress against Paralysis

As Disability Awareness Day is celebrated July 26 on the 31st anniversary of the creation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, NTT INDYCAR SERIES team owner Sam Schmidt continues to be motivated by the progress being made to cure paralysis. “We see the results of the efforts every day at Driven,” said Schmidt, who lives 20 miles from the center and regularly uses its industry-leading equipment. Given that, Schmidt said it “gives him hope” that he could realize a personal benefit from the research. “I’m going on (22) years, so I have a pretty good spectrum of experience,” he said. “Robert is an example of hard work, determination and all the elements of what can be done,” Schmidt said. “I thought I never would feel this freedom again,” Schmidt said after the run. Schmidt then, for the first time in 21 years, stood next to his wife, Sheila, and danced with her.
