Emmanuel’s Ride for Change

Fighting for the rights of disabled persons in Ghana

NAME: Emmanuel Yeboah
HOMETOWN: Koforidua, Ghana, Africa
OCCUPATION: Para-Athlete
WHAT HE’S DOING: Cycling from Dallas, TX to Washington, D.C. with one leg

WHY HE MOVES: Born in Ghana with just one leg, Emmanuel was disabled and seen as cursed. He is determined to overcome his challenges and change the perception of disabled persons in Ghana. He is raising money to build schools in Ghana for disabled children.

Emmanuel was born with only one leg in Ghana—a place where disabilities were seen as a curse. Those lucky enough to survive to adulthood usually became beggars with no education. Through the dedication of a loving mother, and the conviction to prove that he was as capable as any, Emmanuel learned to play sports, hold a job, and be a contributing member of society.

In 2001, Emmanuel pedaled his bike with his only leg 400 miles across his home country of Ghana, attracting the attention of the government and other highly influential people. Soon after, he was instrumental in helping pass The Disabled Persons Act in Ghana.

Now, Emmanuel is riding to raise awareness and gain funding to build schools in Ghana for kids with disabilities. He will stop in various cities along his 1800-mile route to spread his message to the general public. He will also visit elementary schools and read to students from “Emmanuel’s Dream,” the children’s book written about his inspiring story. At the conclusion of his ride, he hopes to meet with President Barack Obama.
