Terry Hayes, PFC, U.S. Army (RET)

Move United Warfighters Ambassador Terry “Scooter” Hayes grew up an athlete playing lacrosse, softball and was an avid runner. After her injury, she looked up “wheelchair sports” and found Wheelchair Fencing videos from the Paralympic Games – she soon started her own lessons. After years of training, Terry is on the Team USA Parafencing Team hoping to compete in 2021.

When she’s not training, Terry stays busy swimming, participating in local art shows, and serves on a working committee of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging with USA Fencing. Terry lives in Florida with her wife and two dogs.
