IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunter Wise Financial Group, LLC (www.hunterwise.com) is pleased to announce that Paul Fejtek has been named the Most Inspirational Athlete in 2010 by the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF).
Mr. Fejtek was born with Brachial Plexus Palsy, paralysis of the arm due to an injury at birth to the brachial plexus, the network of nerves originating in the upper spine. He says his mother was a "great motivator" who instilled in him the attitude "to live his life to the fullest."
With his wife, Denise, Paul recently stood 29,029 feet above sea level, at the top of Mount Everest, the highest mountain peak in the world. This was the culmination of a goal to climb the highest summit on each of the world's seven continents while raising funds for CAF.
"Climbing the seven summits will hopefully inspire others to go after their dreams, no matter how big their obstacles may be," Mr. Fejtek said. "Sports can invigorate the human spirit, especially within those individuals with physical challenges."
Mr. Fejtek also was recently honored at the University of Southern California as the Sigma Phi Epsilon Alumnus of the Year. "I firmly believe that an optimistic attitude and unwavering commitment are the same factors that will get you to the top in business as well," says Paul.
Mr. Fejtek is a published author, frequent guest speaker, and has been featured multiple times on network television news. In his role at Hunter Wise he specializes in mergers & acquisitions of privately held companies in the food & beverage, software, and medical device industries among others.
