Rodolpho Riskalla was a promising dressage rider with goals and dreams of someday competing in the Olympics. He was visiting his home in Brasil when he contracted Meningitis and his life changed forever. He lost many of his fingers and also lost both of his feet. Rodolpho didn’t let that tragedy stop him. Less than 5 months later he was back on a horse and still chasing his dream. This time, it was representing Brasil in the Paralympics.
This is true COURAGE! Meningitis may have taken its physical toll, but it didn’t take what’s most important. Rodolpho’s spirit and his determination are absolutely incredible. Share this on Facebook if you believe in chasing dreams!
