Rory Koonce Jr. grew up competing, he won in every sport from martial arts to wheelchair track, baseball and basketball. However, on December 6th of 2009, he won The Delaware State Powerlifting Championships from a wheelchair.
In 2013, he then went on to win two more national and world championships and finally to break his own records which still stand today! He then went on to compete in and win the Ricardo Legends Classic which took place August 22nd, 2015 allowing Rory to qualify for the Natural Mr. Olympia which took place on November 11th in Las Vegas Nevada at the Bally’s casino resort and hotel.
At The Natural Mr. Olympia, Rory “The Stone Powerhouse” Koonce held his undefeated streak once again. The one thing Rory has not accomplished was to garner a Major Product Endorsement Deal which is hard to do in his industry, after all, most people who are not physically challenged who have accomplished what Rory has in life and in sports, already have endorsement deals or other financial rewards in addition to the trophies.
Bryant Vickers of Vickers Marketing Group feels that Rory deserves something that would have far more impact on Rory and others than an Endorsement Deal. Vickers has decided to invest in Rory; he is currently building a $1250 website and spending another $500 to set up some basic local marketing for Rory to attract clients.
Vickers has established a Go Fund Me campaign for Rory to raise additional funds
to reach national press, to hopefully solicit larger brand awareness to attract, speaking engagements and personal training clients for Rory to train other physically challenged individuals and veterans.
Vickers primary goal is to acquire online press, to garner media quote to be featured in major news outlets and to reach sports publishers, editors and reporters all across America, in order to tell Rory’s, “The Impossible is Possible” story. All while reaching their $2500 Go Fund Me goal.
