On October 7 I’m going to attempt to use my ReWalk- Robotic Exoskeleton to walk the entire length of the Portlandathon half-marathon. The 13.1 mile race should take me between 16-19 hours to complete.

While this is a personal goal of mine, I will also be promoting , and seeking sponsorship support for our GOT LEGS! Gives Back Matching Program where people in need will be able to create an I NEED LEGS Campaign through the new IGL website(still under construction),and whatever funds they raise IGL will match dollar for dollar that will go towards their mobility or adaptive technology. Please stay tuned for more updates💪💪

Regarding Former Oregon State University
Basketball Coach Amory Tingle “Slats” Gill
The following information is readily available, however, it is apparently often overlooked, excused, non-weighed, or otherwise omitted from consideration in various “honors” bestowed on former Oregon State University basketball coach (1928-1964) Slats Gill. The fundamental consideration here is whether tenure, success (wins), power & privilege, outweigh the shameful damages of racist attitudes & practices at a “public” educational institution regarding “honoring.”
FACT: In 1963, State Representative Berkeley Lent, who later went on to be Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court, publicly accused OSU Basketball Coach “Slats” Gill of intentionally forbidding Blacks from playing on the basketball team. One of Gill’s defenders stated, “Slats was a very moralistic man. He didn’t believe in (male) Negroes going out with White girls… when there were enough girls of their own kind on campus, he would.” ((Historical White male racist sexual phobia “moralistic” ?))
FACT: Gill is also said to have sworn that no Black man would ever play on the OSU basketball team while he was coach. He largely complied with his pledge during his 36 year coaching career at OSU (1928-1964) and served as OSU Athletic Director until his death in 1966.
FACT: Gill stated to staff that Blacks athletic speed & agility derived from being chased through the jungle by lions and
escaping by jumping over rivers. (Witnesses to these statements are among OSU staff and former students).
FACT: Nevertheless;
> OSU honored Slats Gill by naming “Gill Coliseum” after him.
> Gill served as President of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (1957-58).
> Gill was honored with induction to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, and the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.
> “The Slats Gill Sportsperson of the Year” (1957-present) is awarded to the outstanding coach, administrator or organization from an Oregon-based team at any level of competition.
For decades OSU coach Slats Gill deployed a personal racist policy to limit educational & athletic opportunities for “non-Whites” at Oregon State University. Hence, his immeasurable damage at OSU is historical fact.

It is alarming to witness from many who knew him, the acknowledgement and honoring of Gill, who was well known as a racist.
Surely in the aftermath of World War II the University of Berlin would not name a political science lecture hall after Adolf Hi**er to honor and glorify his decades of “success” as a political public speaker.
Perhaps “Gill Coliseum” brings innocent pride to decades of Gill’s favored Caucasian basketball players, in which they may not register the impact of denial of their opportunity to play and interact with non-Caucasian teammates. Admittedly, the magnitude
of Hi**er’s racism did not eliminate as many “undesirables” as did Gill’s at OSU, however, it is a basic principle of American justice that each denial of human rights and opportunity contributes to generations of damage. In this regard, continued honoring of racism exemplifies unacceptable protection of historical racism and serves as a foundation of continued institutional racism.
Honoring Slats Gill contributes to shameful denial in favor of the constructive illusion of his honorable leadership in public
“higher education.”
Surely the quality of educational experience at Oregon State University has benefited from numerous contributions and service of outstanding individuals worthy of honoring---all without racist practices.
After all, the OSU Alumni consists of state, national and world leaders in a multitude of endeavors---including basketball coaching.
Perhaps a re-naming of “Gill Coliseum” would celebrate that all are accepted now and would be an honorable separation from an icon of an embarrassing and shameful past---Oregon State University deserves much better.

In the spirit of honorable recognition the Oregon State University leadership may surely recognize a man who contributed to breaking Gill’s shameful rule with unquestionable honor, integrity and service to OSU from his days as a student-athlete to his
outstanding coaching career. In contrast to Gill’s racist reign, this man recognized and recruited Black basketball players for their academic and athletic potential and their character. In fact, this man coached the Beavers to the Conference Championship and Élite-Eight in the NCAA Tourney---yet, his own Athletic Director Gill would not congratulate him.
Yes, unlike Gill, Mr. Paul Valenti served Oregon State University with the integrity and honor that Oregon State University
can be eternally proud of. “Valenti Coliseum” can be a tribute to a true Beaver who pioneered OSU’s brake from decades of
racist shame.

The above information has been cited from documented sources, as well as, from personal experiences of former OSU staff,
student-athletes and coaching staff.
