Reggie Bennett was 13 when a gun accident left him paralyzed.  He recalls dragging himself around the house by his arms, before his parents retrofitted their home for his wheelchair.  Now Reggie runs Rebuilding All Homes Efficiently, a non-profit that retrofits homes for the disabled.  He talks about his community work, and how he achieved his dream of becoming a professional athlete.
