Meet Richard Preiss
For those of you who do not have the pleasure of knowing Richard, he is wheelchair bound. Although one would think that would limit the activities he can participate in, that is hardly the case. Richard has increasingly become a more active member in the Community Enrichment Program here at the Arc Fond du Lac. Richard attends almost every activity we offer including fitness class, bocce, fishing, cooking class, bingo, athletics, bowling, beach days, picnics, boys night out, and other various fun weekend events. Richard has achieved what man would see as unachievable.
In June 2012, Richard went to Special Olympics State athletics (track and field) in Stevens Point and came home with a gold and silver medal. The slippery track after a heavy rainfall did not faze Richard. Right before the gun sounded, Richard looked over at his fan section with a huge smile and gave everyone the thumbs up. He was not deterred by the weather, he was just happy to compete. Most recently, Richard’s Special Olympics bocce team won Regional’s and is advancing to state in early August. It does not matter to Richard what he is participating in, whether it be competitive or not, he approaches each situation the same: with a smile, positive attitude, and teamwork mentality.
