“I never really in my wildest dreams thought that I would have a chance to be on a team like this. But over the past several years, I have noticed something about myself that I hadn’t before my amputation. That is being an amputee is only a small part of who I am and it doesn’t reflect what I can or cannot do. I realized my limitations are solely dependent on my attitude. I believe that being a part of this expedition will give me a chance to make others, disabled or not, aware of the truly limitless capabilities of physically disabled athletes and disabled individuals in general.”

Dinesh is a right leg – above the knee – amputee, who loves all outdoor activities. He participates in both basketball and football tournaments. He was presented the “Male Athlete of the Year” award by the Warm Spring Sports Program, and also was a participant in the “Tour De Cure 2002,” a 20-mile cycling tour to help raise funds for diabetes. Dinesh has worked as a team leader at the Texas Lion’s Camp, a camp dedicated to serving physically disabled kids. He currently resides in San Antonio, Texas.
