Our BAMF of the Day! Raleigh Chambers.
Raleigh Chambers may be in a wheelchair, but it didn’t stop him from standing up to a prowler in August when he received a frantic phone call from a neighbor.
Robin Grant called Chambers in a panicked plea for help for her 16-year-old daughter, who was home alone with a man trying to break into the house. Chambers sped to his neighbor’s house in his motorized wheelchair and confronted the would-be intruder, who ran off, according to City Council member James Tate, who honored Chambers today with Spirit of Detroit award.
Grant said she made the call without thinking of Chambers as disabled.
“I’m so glad that he was there to answer the call,” she said. “It is a big deal.”
“I will never, ever be able to thank you enough for what you did that day,” she said
Raleigh is the MAN! I’m sure it was just genuine instinct of concern that kicked in and in that moment, not once did he hesitate nor think that he was incapable of doing anything because of his disability.
