David Wagner

I know this guy, he is an amazing athlete, cute, funny, kind and his heart is huge. The problem is, the world doesn’t know him….yet. This is where I ask you for help. I want you to share this post with all of your friends and family. Or better yet, send it into your favorite talk show {Ellen}. This is what I just sent her. Feel free to copy it or write up your own. Either way, help me get his name out there. I promise, it will be worth it.

“David Wagner, you don’t know his name but you should. He is the number 1 Quad wheelchair tennis player in the world! He doesn’t get the shouts out he deserves. Gold, Silver and Bronze medal winner from Athens, Beijing and London. He is as humble as they come and cute to boot.

He was hurt at the age of 21. Playing frisbee on the beach in CA. a wave jackknifed him landing him head first in the sand. Paralyzed from the chest down, he has overcome the impossible. He currently resides and trains at the Olympic Training center in Chula Vista Ca, he is the only wheelchair resident there.

He travels all over the world playing in tournaments, talks to children at different schools out of the goodness of his heart and holds a yearly wheelchair tennis camp for children with physical disabilities in Oregon.

David is a star, a role model, a friend and an world class athlete. I would love to introduce him to Ellen and the world.

David wants to start his own charity for children with disabilities but doesn’t know where to start.. So here I am, writing you, asking for help. Please help me recognize this amazing man who could be down with despair but chooses to be the best he can with what he has and wants to help others. Help me let him know how amazing he is.”

So are you with me?

  1. this is awesome, I was working with David at ShopKo here in Walla Walla when he had gone on that vacation and had his accident. He was a fun guy to work with and I never saw him after it all happened. I have heard of his accomplishments and seen his success. Very proud of him! 🙂

  2. I knew David through my older brother Darryl. I had the biggest crush on him and enjoyed it when he came over to visit. I knew him as Wags, but I am so very proud of all that he has done. Keep up the good work!!
