[July 17, 2013] Perry Hendricks loves being active. You can often find him backpacking, hiking and playing golf. Perry is also a man that believes that we are our brother’s keeper and that when we receive kindness we are obligated to pay it forward.

Perry volunteers with the Courage Kenny (formerly Sister Kenny) Golf Program. He works with participants who have had polio, amputations, arthritis, strokes, spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities and shows them that they can continue to enjoy golf with family and friends.

Perry and the other Courage Kenny Golf Program volunteers help with lessons, teach participants to use adaptive equipment and provide physical assistance when necessary. See more about Hendricks at kare11.com.
