Rory Koonce was born weighing one pound, 13 ounces, on April 30th, 1988. Rory was born with Cerebral Palsy and was told by doctors that he would not be able to see, speak, walk, or use the left side of his body. Rory has overcome tremendous obstacles in his life and has become a world renowned power curler! Rory is also a certified personal trainer, sports nutritionist, and strives to start his own holistic training center for disabled athletes in the future! 

Rory's nickname is "The Stone Powerhouse". He believes that the impossible is possible. Every day, Rory strives to be a better person by lifting the spirits of others.

Rory holds state, national, and world records for power curling in three different weight classes and has also won back to back to back world championships in power curling. 

With the big boy of all competitions coming up, The NPC Baltimore Gladiator Classic in Baltimore, Maryland on March 21st, Rory needs our help to raise the funds to get him into the competition! 

All funds raised will be used directly for this competition in order to register for NPC card admission to enter the competition, trainer fees, travel, and hotel accommodations.
