Patrick has always had a passion for working on motorcycles. However due to being in a wheel-chair it was extremely difficult for him. The founder of Cowtown Warriors, Jeremy Spann, was informed of his situation. Jeremy then put on a charity skeet shooting event and raised over
20,000 dollars! This was used to build Patrick a full wheel-chair accessible motorcycle shop in his back yard!
